AT FIRST glance this picture just looks like a bit of baron wasteland strewn with dead leaves and with tufts of grass poking out of the dry ground.
But if you look closer you’ll see a deadly snake is camouflaged in grey-brown ground… so can you spot it?
The dangerous reptile is virtually invisible on the floor as it slithers its way around the tuft of grass just right of the centre of the image.
The Snake Hunter, from Australia, discovered the creature while in South Morang, Victoria.
He posted the picture to his Facebook account with the comment: “Can you spot the venomous snake?”
And it proved a difficult task for many social media users.
One person wrote: “I can never find any of the snakes, I’d be screwed.”
And another agreed: “I’m not even going to try cause I never can spot the darn things.”
The reptile in question is a lowland copperhead snake which is usually found in southeastern Australia and Tasmania.
The venomous serpent can kill an adult human with its deadly bite although if proper medical attention is sort, people can survive an attack.
They are generally 1-1.5m in length and their colour can vary greatly from a black to grey to red to brown.
The critter in our snapshot is a mid-brown colour, meaning it is virtually impossible to identify against the dusty ground.
It’s not the first time a hidden serpent has baffled Facebook users.
This photograph appears to show a typical back garden with an overgrown lawn, a wooden fence and a clothes horse.
There’s actually a massive snake hiding amongst the greenery – so can you spot it?
The huge reptile is camouflaged in the shrubbery in the top right hand corner of the image.
Sunshine Coast Snake Catchers, from Queensland, Australia, were called in by home owners after they saw the reptile hiding amongst the plants, with part of its body hanging over the fence.
But that’s not the only sneaky snake – there’s a reptile hidden amongst this pile of leaves.
And, one of the world’s deadliest snakes is hiding in this patch of grass.
