Among this huge herd of zebras there is a carnivore, a tiger, hiding smartly waiting for its chance to ambush its prey.

In the picture, we can see a group of zebras running in what seems to be a sparsely dense plain land. The tiger is sitting among the zebras crouched behind a bush.
What the picture portrays is a common scene seen in the jungle where herbivores are the easiest prey for carnivores. Herbivores like zebra, deer are an important part of the linear food chain network and are an important source of food and energy for meat-eating animals like lions and tigers. In order to maintain the food chain, organisms depend on each other for food. In this process, the flow of energy remains uninterrupted between two levels of the food chain. Your objective?

In this picture the white tiger is blending in perfectly with the herd of zebras and is calmly sitting behind the bush in what seems like the pose a tiger takes before making the pounce on the prey.
Camouflaging or blending in with the surrounding environment forms the foundation of preying among wild animals. Carnivores like tigers and lions are known to hide secretly waiting for a chance to attack the prey. As is seen in several wildlife videos, the prey though is always timid and seems to be very careful is usually unaware of the presence of the attacker. Hint 2
Focus on those parts in the picture where you normally would not look. Usually people focus on the centre of a picture at first glance. Only a skillful observant would notice every nook and corner of the image and see the rarely seen.
Not just in this picture, in life also you have to look for things that are beyond your imagination and vision. You need to seek that is difficult to be sought. The trick to this optical illusion is the same. In order to find the answer we have to take the non-obvious route. Not everything is easy; sometimes we have to move our eyes away from the obvious and focus on what others can't focus on. Here's the tiger
Much similar to its wild behaviour, the tiger in this optical illusion is sitting behind the bush waiting for its chance to pounce on its prey. The white tiger is seen sitting in the right hand side of the picture. Due to its color pattern it is difficult to spot the hunter animal. The image also points to the obvious habitat pattern in the wildlife. The animals belonging to the cat family are considered to be the most skilled hunting animals. Their soft paws and hunting tactics make it easy for them to take hold of their prey.
Only those who have good observation skills might be able to spot the tiger in this picture within 10 seconds. The hint is to look beyond the obvious!
