Optical illusions are a tricky thing. Nothing is ever as it seems, and this one is no exception.

A photo has garnered several interested gazes online for displaying what seems like a collage of random food items mishmashed together. The surprising thing was the question appearing above the simple photograph: How long did it take you to spot a lion in this photo?

Many were completely beaten by the optical illusion and simply could not, no matter how hard they tried, find the lion. Can you?

Can you find the lion in this optical illusion?

Usually, we write the answer to our optical illusions at the bottom of the article, but for this one, we simply couldn't crack it!
