Image Quiz Is Stumping Most Adults. Can You Find The Bear Before Hunter Is Eaten [answer]

Updated March 3, 2017

Brainteasers are back in style in a big way. And the internet cannot get enough of them. But for those who have enjoyed doing them for years, this new one is might stump even you.

Asked to find the grizzly bear within this vintage puzzle, users keep reporting that it is stumping them. The drawing, which is completed in retro-style, was recently shared on Playbuzz. It shows a man hunting in the snow equipped with a shotgun and a pair of snowshoes.

But little does he know that he is dangerously close to a grizzly bear. And it is your job to spot it before it gets to him!

If the hunter only knew how close he was to a mammoth grizzly bear, he’d either take aim or run for his life.

Can you see where the bear is hiding?

Only the players with the sharpest eagle eyes have been able to spot the bear within the first five seconds. And those that have, report that the bear is upside down on the right side among the snow-capped trees.

When viewed carefully, you should be able to see the hidden bear. The artist disguised it as a cliff face among the trees and snow.

The brainteaser was first shared on Playbuzz with the title: “Quick! Can you find the hidden bear before the hunter gets eaten?”

The challenge continues with:

“A Hunting We Will Go with Trapper John

“Enter Trapper John, the world’s greatest bear killer. The bears around these parts know him, fear and hate him. They have a pact among bears in this neck of the woods, they say “If you ever see Trapper John, eat him!” So while he thinks he is about to bag one very large Grizzly Bear as his newest trophy, the bears have other plans. Let’s see if you can spot the bear before Trapper John meets his maker.

“Take a Closer Look at the Scene – Did You Spot the Bear?

“This tricky classic illustration has been creating a new sensation around the internet. Deceptively simple, though most people can’t find the cleverly hidden bear. Time is running out for Trapper John and dinner time is fast approaching.”


Although they’ve been given time, many users struggle to get it right.

Playbuzz suggests: “If at first you didn’t see where the bear was hidden, you needed to flip the image upside down. Now do you see him? He was disguised as the base of the trees.”

If you failed to find the bear quickly, Playbuzz says that you “let the bear kill him!”

“You are a well known friend of animals large and small even though you had plenty of time to warn him of the attack, you simply just stood there and let it happen. Good news! The bears learned of your great deed and will celebrate you and make you a legend for all time.”
