Some riddles are simple to solve, while others can be rather challenging. Illusions are the ones that appear to cause the most debate on social media or even among friends!!!

This is due to the fact that most illusions are dependent on perception. What you see may not be the same as what the other person sees. Trying to perceive the same thing from someone else’s point of view can be difficult in many circumstances!

Why do people love illusions, then? Well, it can be quite fascinating when you take a moment and realize that different individuals can see the same things in their own unique ways. It’s a reminder that, just because we disagree with someone’s views, it doesn’t always mean we are right and they are wrong.

Sometimes, it just means they do not see things as we do, which is alright. We are all unique, after all. Take this riddle, for instance, you are very likely to attempt to solve it based on what you see, but you will soon find out that you may need quite a few glances at the image to figure it out.

However, the question is quite straightforward. In the image, how many legs can you see? However, the answer may not be what you expect. Try it: Are there seven legs? 8? Or maybe even 12?

There are actually 13 legs in the picture, as it turns out. Six of the legs are pointing below, while the other seven are pointing upwards. Do you agree with our conclusion or do you hold a different opinion? We’d love to hear your thoughts.
