A DEADLY copperhead snake has found the perfect hiding spot, camouflaged among a pile of rocks.
Images show the venomous reptile lurking among the foliage, covered by several leaves – but can you spot it?
The snap was posted by Mark’s Reptiles – a US based content creator – as eagle eyed users were challenged to spot the sneaky serpent.
One wrote: “Bro I give up. Idk where it’s at.”
A second user said: “I tried to find it for the past 15 minute, where it it!”
Before a third finally added: “Found it! After like 5 mins of zooming in on different spots copperheads camouflage SO well!”
Others also managed to see past the reptile’s attempts at disguise and found him lurking in the middle of the photo.
Mark confirmed that the reptile was a copperhead – which are renowned for their abilities to camouflage in plain sight.
It comes as Avid snake enthusiast Isaiah, 18, described how cooperheads “tend to keep to themselves when possible" as they hide in the dark.
After sharing footage online he said: "When human encounters do occur the best way not to get bitten is to just leave them alone."

He added: "I’m experienced in handling snakes and I always act accordingly when I come across venomous or potentially dangerous ones, and the individual in this video was not super defensive."
The southern copperhead has a painful bite but almost never fatal to humans.
Copperheads give no warning signs and strike almost immediately if they feel threatened.
They have hemotoxic venom, which means that a copperhead bite results in temporary tissue damage in the immediate area of the bite.
Copperhead snakes are the most common type of snake throughout the United States.
