Trying to find hidden fruits in a sea of bears in this optical illusion might give you a coconut.
There are three brown “coconuts” between the heads of dozens of bears in this mind-boggling illustration by Hungarian author-artist Gergeli Dudas — aka The Dudolf.
Some of the featured teddies are sporting different styles of ties, and one even opted for a top hat. The other is wearing a Harry Potter-style neck scarf.
Most of the bears are brown, while a handful of white bears are sprinkled throughout the picture to tease the eyes.
OK, here’s a clue: Like bears, coconuts appear to have two points as eyes and one for the mouth – but they do not have ears like animals.
The end result is so difficult that those who can see the coconut in under 30 seconds are in the top one percent.

As we mentioned earlier, there are three coconuts in the illusion. If you split the picture down the center, two of them are on the right and the other on the left.
The ones on the right are stuck in the top and bottom areas of the photo while the coconuts on the left are in the middle zone.
Yes, they look more like newborn babies yawning than coconuts—but that’s beside the brain-wrenching point.
Anyway, if it was that simple, try one of these: Puzzle lovers are blowing the gasket trying to figure out this numerical eye test that only 0.1% of people who attempt these things can solve. Huh. The horrifying visual jigsaw was first shared on TikTok in April, but is currently flying as viewers are trying to break their orbital muscles into it.
How about this: If you can spot a mouse in this optical illusion in less than a minute, you could be a record holder.
Sure, optical illusions like this are often just a fun diversion—but they also hold scientific value for medical professionals. These brain teasers often help researchers shed light on the internal structure of the human mind and how it reacts to its surroundings.
Dr Gustav Kuhn, a psychologist and human perception specialist at Goldsmiths University in London, once told The Sun that delusions are important to our understanding of the brain: “We usually take perception for granted, and rarely through hard work. Think about something that underpins everyday tasks, like seeing a cup of coffee in front of you.”
