The internet has seen its share of mind-boggling optical illusions, arguably the most notable one being the dress photograph that became a viral internet sensation on 26 February 2015. Since then, similar cases such as this Vans sneaker has seen a lot of debate, and now, a wildlife photographer's photo of two zebras has left internet users scratching their hands in confusion.

So, which one is facing the camera? Are you confused? Or do you have a guess? Read along to see the photographer's answer.


Take in the Kenyan Maasai Mara national game reserve

Sarosh Lodhi, a photographer from India, took phenomenal pictures after encountering a group of zebras while on an assignment in the Kenyan Maasai Mara national game reserve, which is one of the most important conservation and wilderness areas in all of Africa, Bored Panda reports

However, one particular image of two zebras that look like they've escaped from a trippy animation has gone viral. After forest officer Parveen Kaswan posted the image on Twitter, many users commented on the bizarre nature of the pictures, since no one could tell which zebra was facing the front. 

Could tell which zebra is in front?

So, could tell which zebra is in front? Well, as you'd imagine only the photographer could have known the correct answer. If your guess was that the one on the left is the one who is eyeing the camera, you're correct according to Lodhi's statement.

Don't let facts stop you from hallucinating though... This one is a "I can't see it!" situation until that magical moment that will make you go "I see it now..."
