THIS sneaky serpent has left social media users questioning their vision after hiding itself so well in the grass.
You may not be able to spot the coastal carpet python at first, but take a closer look.
Can you spot the snake hiding in the greenery?[/caption]
Facebook users were asked to inspect the seemingly empty patch of grass and find the hidden reptile in a weekly game of ‘spot the snake’.
The mind-boggling snap taken in Australia has left people baffled and wondering if they need a trip to the opticians.
Some users managed to spot it, but most were unable to find anything among the greenery.
Even after Sunshine Coast Snake Catchers shared a marked-up image showing the snake on the bottom right-hand side of the image, many were still clueless.

Those who could see it took their best guess at what type of snake it was.
One person mis-identified the creature as an eastern green in the centre of the image – which was incorrect, but also not where the snake is located in the image.
Other guesses included a grass snake, a king cobra, a tiger snake and an eastern brown – but the snake catchers confirmed it was a coastal carpet python.
With the grass playing tricks on their minds, other people couldn’t see anything at all.
One person said: “I’m clueless, can’t even see it.”
“Well I’d get bitten and stand on it as I couldn’t see it till I read the comments,” one person added.
Someone else commented: “Huh – can’t see anything other than weeds and some shrubs.”

The picture left many questioning their vision.
One person commented: “Wow, you lot got great eyes, I can’t even see them with glasses on.”
Another said: “I think I need new glasses as buggered if I can see it.”
And one poor user was still stumped, commenting: “I’m hopeless – can’t even see anything in the marked circles.”
