People Can’t Agree Which Of These 2 Zebras Is Looking At The Camera

Sarosh Lodhi, a wildlife photographer from Nagpur, India, traveled to Kenya last year. There, Lodhi went to the Maasai Mara national game reserve, which is one of the most famous and important conservation and wilderness areas in all of Africa. Maasai Mara is recognized for its exceptional populations of lions, African leopards, cheetahs, and African bush elephants, so Lodhi really had a lot of subjects to shoot.

But it’s a picture he took of two zebras that has been going viral. The image sparked a social media debate after forest officer Parveen Kaswan posted it on his Twitter page, asking people to guess which zebra is facing the front. While the challenge sounds simple, coming to a definitive answer is not. Scroll down, check out the image for yourself, and tell us your take on it in the comments.

It all started with a simple question: which of the zebras is facing the camera?

Maasai Mara — the place where Lodhi took the pic — was originally established in 1961 as a wildlife sanctuary and covered only 520 km2 (200 sq mi). The area was extended to the east in 1961 to cover 1,821 km2 (703 sq mi) and converted to a game reserve. The Narok County Council (NCC) took over the management of the reserve at this time. Part of the reserve was given National Reserve status in 1974, and the remaining area of 159 km2 (61 sq mi) was returned to local communities.

No wonder Lodhi came back with breathtaking photos from his trip to the reserve. Wildebeest, topi, zebra, and Thomson’s gazelle migrate into and occupy the Mara reserve and some herds of all three species even reside there. Also, all members of the “Big Five” (lion, leopard, elephant, Cape buffalo, black and white rhinos) are found there all year round.

So, could tell which zebra is in front? If you thought it’s the one on the left, you’re correct. At least that’s what Lodhi said.

But people can’t come to an agreement

Left one. The leftmost ear in the background gives it away. The way it is turned, it can’t be from the left zebra, so that must be the right one, which has to make the one in front the left zebra.

I thought the same. The ears give it away and the jaw doesn't quite line up with the right zebra either.

I find it interesting that people are saying right when it clearly says below the image that the photographer confirmed it is the left zebra. Goes to show how people don't read facts and immediately jump to conclusions.
