Everything and everybody has a shadow, and all of them look different depending on what angle the light is coming from. But sometimes shadows get tired of living in, well, our shadows, and so they decide to forge their own identity by taking on secret lives of their own. Check out the list below to see what we mean. From secret squirrels and invisible dragons to a camouflaged Rambo and even a hidden Donald Trump, the shadows below, compiled by Bored Panda, will change the way you look at the world around you. Have you seen a shadow that doesn’t look like it should? Then feel free to add your pictures to the list, and don’t forget to vote for your favourite!

You really have to unfocus your eyes to see it. Part of the face is not in shadow, so the light part becomes the right side of the face. The edges of the shadow falls at the midline of the face. It's rather uncanny when you see it.
