Whether you have a high IQ or not, your results will be determined by the number of dolphins that you can see. If we are being honest, you are going to need to take more than just a quick glance at this photo in order to solve the illusion.

When we glanced quickly, we only saw nine dolphins and knew that we could not be right about this. As we began to take a closer look, more and more dolphins started to reveal themselves.

If you are looking to take in this optical illusion without having it spoiled for you ahead of time, please be forewarned. There are major spoilers ahead!

Once you take a closer look, you are going to realize something that should have seemed obvious from the get-go. There are some dolphins that are stacked on top of one another. You will eventually notice that there are a number of tails and fins that are stuck together. This lets you know that there are additional dolphins hiding in the mix.

One last hint before we leave our readers to their own devices. Many of these dolphins are of different shapes and sizes. Bear that in mind before you make the mistake of assuming that there are only nine dolphins and going about the rest of your day.

It is an error that has been made all too often, trust us on that.
