Shared first on Reddit, the Imgur video at a first glance appears to be a black 'rabbit' enjoying being stroked on its head.

Nothing hooks people online quite like a puzzle or . The latest is a video of an animal being petted but what’s confusing people is the question whether the subject of the video is a raven, or a rabbit.

Shared first on Reddit, the Imgur video at a first glance appears to be a black ‘rabbit’ enjoying being stroked on its head. However, to many it looks like a raven with its beak open and being stroked on the back of its head.


Here’s the video that’s doing the rounds:

I think there’s something wrong with your rabbit.

The video had over 3 million views, and people couldn’t decide what they were looking at.

My duck does, too! But mostly she likes to glare at me over her shoulder when I pap her…

Oh dear, all those years teaching the rabbit-duck for nothing, not only was it real, but is has always been a raven-rabbit.. (a new raven paradox?)

And in case, you’re still wondering what you’re looking at, the original caption says: “Quoth the Raven ‘awwww yissss'”.
