    I hate these strings, they make me realize just how badly I need to get to the eye doc for a check up.

    Six clearly - any extras would be ghosts! Take the one closest to us, angling away and facing left. Wait until he gives you a better angle and visualize the vitals... then slowly squeeze when you're steady on your spot. (sorry jerome, just got carried away there :)

    Despite trying to turn every tree branch into a leg or foot, I can still only find 6 animals.

    It really doesn't matter though - I've been "busted" because they are all looking at me...

    Hi,
    are you counting the one that is almost completely masked behind the brush. If you count him in, there must be seven in the picture.

    Definitely six. My first instinct was that there are seven, just as Niel and chad pointed out, it looks like there could be another one hiding behind that big tree on the left, however I can't prove it... There is a funny story behind this picture and why I decided to do this post... The picture was part of a story that was written about Ozondjahe Safaris which recently appeared in a major international hunting magazine, the caption beneath it read " Two Gemsbok are looking at us".

    six and I see what I think is an ear on the left side of the tree in the foreground on the left..maybe a horn on the other side but who knows that part of the picture is missing..
