You might not notice it right away, but it’s definitely there, thanks to a clever optical illusion.

The trick was shared by TikToker magic eye.

So can you make it out?

To reveal the camel, simply hold the screen close to your eyes and slowly move away.

The illusion is actually a well-known trick called an autostereogram.

Some may have heard of it as Magic Eye, a series of popular books in the 90’s.

It works by tricking our eyes and brain into seeing a three-dimensional scene in a two-dimensional image.

Initially, you see a lot of 2D patterns repeatedly.

That’s because our brain automatically tells our eyes to focus on the image.

But when you look beyond the obvious and focus behind the 2D pattern, your eyes begin to see things from a different angle.

At this point, the hidden image is revealed when something called stereopsis kicks into action, allowing your brain to create a 3D image instead of the 2D image.

The idea first started with stereograms, which a scientist named Charles Wheatstone discovered in 1838 by combining mirrors and lenses to create the first stereoscope.

The autostereogram came about afterwards in the 1970s thanks to another scientist, Christopher Tyler, who used computers to create the types of optical illusions we see above.

It may take a few tries before it works, so don’t be disappointed right away.

But some people can’t see it at all, so you might need to see if a friend or family member can uncover the hidden creature instead.
