A Photo of a Dog is an Optical Illusion That’s Making People Crazy 

There’s a photo of a perfectly normal dog that’s going viral right now . . . because of an optical illusion that’s making people think they’re looking at anything BUT a perfectly normal dog.


When you see the photo, you know you’re looking at an animal . . . but you aren’t sure what it is.  A baby goat?  A white, hairy pig?  A Chupacabra?


But it’s all an optical illusion.  The dog’s ear looks like a mouth, and its mouth and nose look like an ear.  So if you rotate the photo, you can see it’s just a dog lying on a bed looking up.


Still, it’s a GOOD optical illusion.  Even after I’d seen what the dog actually looks like, my mind would go back and forth between “unidentifiable creature” and “dog.”
