Can you spot the zebra in this huge herd of wildebeest?

This mind-blowing photo shows a massive herd of wildebeest roaming through the savanna, but surprisingly there is one perfectly camouflaged zebra in it and people are struggling to find it! The zebra managed to blend in so well that it took days even for the photographer to realize there is a white-striped animal hiding in his photos.

The Luxembourg-based wildlife photographer Ingo Gerlach was visiting the Maasai Mara National Park in Kenya when spotted a herd of roughly 1,000 wildebeests. It was early in the morning and the gnus were taking their breakfast and Gerlach couldn’t have the moment, so he took hundreds of photos of the herd. However, days later, after a closer look to his snaps, he realized there is also a zebra in his photo. Pretty hard to spot, though!

Can you spot it?

While this photo is a brain-teaser as the only zebra in it is actually extremely difficult to find, it is very common for zebras to travel alongside the gnu herds. And there is a very good reason behind that decision. Hanging close to these massive herds, actually keeps zebras out of predators and make them less vulnerable. But it is not just the zebras that benefit from this migration. It is a win-win relationship for both the zebras and the wildebeests as zebra have extremely sharp vision, so they alarm the whole herd when a predator approach.
