A DEADLY snake found the perfect hiding place which made it look practically invisible.
A mind-boggling photo of the sneaky reptile has left Facebook users baffled.
It has inspired hundreds of people to attempt to find the deadly snake – but plenty have been left racking their brains.
The photo shows the venomous reptile camouflaged as it slithers amid a patch of thick grass and leaves.
It was shared at the weekend by Sunshine Coast Snake Catchers – a professional snake catching service located in Queensland, Australia – as part of their weekly game ‘Spot the Snake Sunday’.
The post reads: “Happy Sunday Snake lovers! Another action-packed week for us with snakes on the move through all forms of weather activity!
“Spot the Snake Sunday today, a little harder than last weeks so best of luck!”
“This is a hard one!! The more I look the more everything turns into a snake lol,” one person wrote.
“Oh my God, my head is spinning… I cannot see anything.. please put us out of our misery,” another asked.
One hilarious person suggested the snake might be a black-legged shadow snake, before adding: “Tis not as deadly as the trouser snake though.”
“I need new glasses,” another Facebook user added.
Others looking for the hidden reptile suggested it may be a Coastal carpet python or a Redbelly black snake.
But after leaving people racking their brains trying to figure out where the slithery snake was, a member of the Sunshine Coast Snake Catchers eventually revealed it is a Yellow Faced Whip Snake.
The reptile is just about visible at the bottom of the photograph, just to the left of the middle, where it is nestled between some leaves.
Sunshine Coast Snake Catchers provides reptile relocation services along the whole Sunshine coast and surrounding areas and often shares pictures of its findings.

Last month, Snake Catchers Brisbane & Gold Coast posted the ‘game of spot the snake’ on their Facebook page after being called out to a home in Sherwood, Queensland.
They took a photo of a python perfectly hidden under a rail, looking ready to pounce while the terrified possum is curled up in a corner on the roof of a family’s porch.
Some users were quick to spot the deadly snake while others could only see the possum.
