It started when Twitter user Helen, shared a photo of a snake.
At first, people were confused, it looked like a bunch of leaves on the ground. There was no way a snake could be in this picture.
She issued the snake-hunt challenge to her followers who immediately tweeted it out to their friends. No one could find the snake!

The tweet went viral in a matter of moments as people started to share the photo in frustration. Hoping that others might be able to point them in the right direction of the sneaky snake.
Some gave up and begged Helen for bright red circles and arrows pointing to the covert camouflager.
Eventually, Helen revealed the snake to the twitterverse and everyone collectively slapped their foreheads:
It was right in front of their eyes the whole time!
