ONLY those with the eyes of an eagle can spot the secret behind this chameleon seemingly in its natural habitat.
If the animal looks slightly suspicious, that's because it isn't simply a photo.
An animated video of the chameleon was featured on Youtube as one of the most prominent versions of the viral image.
In the Youtube version, two models covered in bodypaint position themselves back to back so that the image looks like a living chameleon.
The stunning Illusion series by artist Johannes Stoetter consists of a collection of bodypaint photos featuring wildlife at its most camouflaged.

One body is strongly posied in the center, symmetrically making up the middle of the frog.
Two other bodies flank out at the sides to create both the hand and eye of the wild animal.
Finally, two painted humans take the fetal position to display the lower limbs of the frog, its toes portrayed by human feet.
“There’s a whole world of visual analysis and computation and prediction that is happening outside of the visual system, happening in the frontal lobes," Cavanagh said.
"For moving things — we see them ahead on their path of motion,” he explained, “by just enough.”
Our brains' ability to weave this narrative together “is actually functional. It helps us overcome these delays and see things … where they will be when we get there.”
