Twitter user @SssnakeySci (a.k.a. Helen) presented the world with this puzzling photo:

"Difficult but I found it eventually (once I had actually put my glasses on)," tweeted Chloรซ Dalglish.

Helen admitted her real reason for posting the mind-boggling pic: "Because I'm a terrible grad student who had a final paper deadline...so sorry!" Aha. No apologies needed.

Others gave helpful hints for finding the snake. "Exactly in the center of pic. Kindly zoom it and [then] you need to see the dark maroon color snake stripes," wrote Ashish Aswal.

Many found it infuriatingly hard to see the snake even once they found it.

"Even when you see it, it keeps disappearing. #camouflage," tweeted Katy Turner.

Being a snake scientist, Helen finished with a PSA about snakes:
