Can you spot one of the world's deadliest snakes hiding in the bush?

Considered the second most poisonous snakes on earth, the Eastern Brown snake snake is also able to cleverly camouflage itself from unsuspecting victims.

The photo, taken by animal professionals Snake Out Brisbane Snake Catchers, has left social media stumped, with some unable to see it even after spending minutes staring at the screen, according to Daily Mail.

The reptile is hidden perfectly between the pile of leaves, twigs and branches, causing frustration for those on Facebook.

But while most viewers were looking for a pair of beady eyes, the head of the snake is actually hidden beneath the pile of branches.

All that can be seen of the animal is a small section of its brown body, which looks just like a large branch.
