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.”
