@purefog WHERE IS THE SNIPE?

purefog

@I'm Right on Top of that, Rose

Damned if I know.

laurel

@purefog I never found it either. It probably doesn't help that I don't know what a snipe looks like. (We never found one on our snipe hunts!)

Blondsak

@I'm Right on Top of that, Rose I found him! Shall I tell you where? You can only see his head...

laurel

@Blondsak Is it stripey?

Blondsak

@laurel Yes! You can see the stripes.

harebell

@purefog The wolf was one of the hardest ones for me to spot, for some reason. How uncanny! I would be mincemeat.

Megasus

The first elephant one is my favourite.

@Megano! LOOK I'M A DEAD TREE

laurel

@Megano! Up, periscope.

I learned recently that the reason zebra stripes help them camouflage is not because it makes them blend into their environment (i.e., grasses, bushes, trees), but because it makes it hard for predators to distinguish a single animal in a herd.

RK Fire

@fondue with cheddar Oh, you and your "zoology"!

[That definitely makes more sense than the idea that the stripes help them blend in tall grasses.]

JessicaLovejoy

@fondue with cheddar I love the idea of some other animal being all "Dammmnnnnnn look at that giant stripey thing! LISA! COME LOOK AT THIS GIANT STRIPEY THING."

fondue with cheddar

@JessicaLovejoy HA! I don't think that's how it works but it's a hilarious image.

@fondue with cheddar Lions are also colorblind, so the black and white zebras end up blending into the grass and such.

How do you know that there aren't other animals in these pics who are good at hiding?

Edith Zimmerman

@Setec Astrology :-O

That lizard actually isn't that obvious. (Or maybe I'm a terrible animal spotter.)

Lily Rowan

Holy cow, those pictures are amazing.

laurel

I love it when house cats do this. 'You cannot see me, master of jungle camouflage that I am, behind this single ficus leaf.'

fondue with cheddar

@laurel My head is under the bed, therefore I'M COMPLETELY HIDDEN!

JessicaLovejoy

Maybe you're just a really good finder. (You Hufflepuff.)

RocketSurgeon

These are fantastic photos. I did a safari in SA a couple years ago and it was amazing. Except for the part where the rhino started charging at our Jeep. I hope you enjoyed yours as much as I did mine.

Lili L.

@RocketSurgeon Ahhh!!!! No rhinos charged me, though I did accidentally wake up a lion by driving too close to him. (That one was good at hiding.)

Heat Signature

That lion is like, "What? Like you're gonna fuck with me?"

Apocalypstick

...What the hell is that antelope doing?

Lili L.

hiding under his own leg? Or yoga?

Dancercise

Hiding behind his own leg, of course.

iceberg

@Apocalypstick checking to make sure it's still there? men use their hands.

laurel

Surreptitiously checking to see if his deodorant is working.

redheaded&crazy

@laurel I mean, we've all done it.

If you're real lucky, you get a bro to do it for you, as in zebras #3.

tea sonata

The second to last picture of the Zebra isn't hiding, he's just Shy!
Peekaboo!

Alternatively, "I can't see you, you can't see me."

cinnamonskin

Zebras, you are very bad at hiding. Also zomg these photos are so great! Please bring me back an elephant.
