I agree with everyone! This one was awesome!

Posted by snowmonster on Aug 03, 2006

either 4 or 8 - depends of how "wild' you want to invision this elephant to be! Loved it!

Posted by Brainy_1 on Aug 03, 2006

Whoa! Too cool!

Posted by SPUTNIK2 on Aug 06, 2006

naturally four, but my eyes are messing with me right now and I see eight!

Posted by Dishhead5 on Aug 07, 2006

Posted by bpkeller on Aug 07, 2006


Posted by Psychic_Master on Aug 11, 2006

Interesting, yet so very confusing at the same time!

Posted by Pizzazz2u on Aug 15, 2006

Hmm?!? Which answer are you really searching for? The correct one or how many legs do you see? A very unique and interesting, yet mysteriously strange looking teaser or elephant?

Posted by smarty_blondy on Oct 31, 2006


Posted by Kaioke on Oct 31, 2006

I think I hurt my head looking too hard! Lol.

Posted by girliepie on Dec 11, 2006

that made my brain itch.

Posted by Angelli on Dec 26, 2006

LOVE this one! Although I've already seen it...

Posted by lavender on Jan 03, 2007

Ow! It gave me a headache trying to figure that out!

Posted by lavender on Jan 03, 2007

But I liked it!

Posted by Unstumpable on Jan 05, 2007

ummm..... its obviously none. Where its legs are there is just air for feet, and there are feet in the middle of no where, so you can't count either since they aren't full, so that elephant has 0. i really found this one dissappointing 0 fun for me

Posted by xxilove_ihatexx on Jan 13, 2007

i agree with ^ unstumpable^ completely.. there are no completions which comes out to 0. so its a trick? eh whatever

Posted by theadamsaiga on Jan 18, 2007

Great Fun Jake.

Posted by musicfreak on Jan 20, 2007

WOW!! That was wierd!! I saw five, but after reading others coments, I have no idea what I saw.

Posted by The_Leprechaun on Jan 24, 2007

Not to outdo 'Unstumpable' but if you look properly it has 1 leg. The very back leg is the only one which is complete!

Posted by Trickster1992 on Feb 02, 2007

Its got 9 legs, except it's only got 4 or 5 at a time.

Posted by kauphi1976 on Mar 07, 2007

nice ! my eyes hurt and now i see even stranger things

Posted by SmartyBrainStar on Mar 07, 2007


Posted by blablabla on Mar 15, 2007

5....right??? he has five feet, right??? ITS SOO CONFUSING!!!!

Posted by on Mar 23, 2007

that was so cuul, like 6 right?

Posted by Mooooods on Mar 27, 2007

This picture is really some thinng, it took me a while but i THINK it has 4 legs

Posted by cooltigerr1 on Mar 31, 2007

it has 8 legs duh! lol i like it

Posted by alicexcore on Apr 03, 2007

I..Don't ... know....
Nice job.
You've officially confused me.
Yeah dawg.

Posted by melina on Apr 16, 2007

dats kwl!

Posted by brucemcdon on Apr 19, 2007

Moving the image with the scroll bar is interesting. With the elephant at the bottom of the screen and the feet hidden, it's an easy count, 4 legs. Then moving it to the top, with only the feet showing, 5 feet. A 4-legged, 5-footed elephant would be hard to dance with.

Posted by littlemr027 on Apr 22, 2007

That is a little strange, but funny
I wonder how they make things like elephants with four legs, yet five feet.

Posted by ABisme on Apr 25, 2007

when u first look your eyes go whack .me myself i had to look at another picture to get my brain (lol) back together

Posted by bigsis024 on Apr 27, 2007

Posted by Shelilah on Apr 18, 2009

Posted by Jadxia on May 18, 2009

That's the elephant you see when you decide to quit drinking.

Posted by funnimunki on Mar 18, 2010

Posted by gathena on May 26, 2010

First leg is joined wrongly

Posted by redsfan577 on Oct 02, 2011

Nice illusion! This one always confuses me!

Posted by Benjiboo on Nov 04, 2011

Posted by asdasd on Dec 20, 2011


Posted by asdasd on Dec 20, 2011

I like elephants

Posted by Me-waz-here on Jan 08, 2012

I see clearly that it has four legs. It looks like he had five, but there is one in his mouth. So really, he was mad that he had one too many legs, ripped it off, and had nowhere else to putti other than eat it.

Posted by moomoomonkeybut on Jun 13, 2012

about eight legs

Posted by 30angel100 on Sep 26, 2012

When you stare hard enough, it only has one. The one in back.
Unless you want the number of actual legs ignoring the feet.

Posted by MeAuKoCat on Sep 27, 2012

Wow.. This is harder than I thought! Lol!

Posted by lala1978 on Jan 10, 2013

This one made my brain and eyes hurt! At first I thought it had 9 legs. Lol!!! Then I looked several more times. It looks like it has 4 legs and 5 feet. Is that right?? For my brain's sake I hope it is !!!!

Posted by bunnymother on Jun 20, 2013

My eyes feel so confused right now.

Posted by SaraGrace on Jul 31, 2013

My brain hurts

Posted by ismartguy on May 19, 2014

Posted by FreePuzzles on Jan 19, 2015

Posted by myna on Jun 18, 2015
