A snow leopard is hiding in this picture, Internet is zooming in and out to spot, can you?

Nature is a gift that keeps on giving. Now, thanks to the internet, we have the opportunity to explore facets of our environment, flora and fauna that we would not have been exposed to otherwise. The latest on the list of such popular nature posts is an image of a snow leopard that has users hooked.

The image, which has now gone viral on Twitter, features the wildcat camouflaging itself amid a mountainous terrain, capped with snow. It would be an understatement to say that it is difficult to spot the leopard in the image.

Twitter users got a good look at the image when it was shared by IFS Officer Ramesh Pandey who asked his followers if they could locate the animal. He went on to call the snow leopard a “phantom cat” and “ghost of the mountains”, given its ability to blend in with its surroundings. This makes it almost impossible to detect the leopard at first glance. However, it took Twitter users way more than just a glance to spot the elusive animal in the image.

Sharing the photo and tagging the photographer, Mr Pandey tweeted, “Phantom cat….! They are called ghost of the mountains. If you can locate.”

Tell us whether you were able to spot the animal or needed help like many of us to locate it.
