However, an optical illusion is now making the rounds that proves you might not be as able to distinguish the two animals as you thought.

Is this a rabbit or a black raven? Forget the 'beach or stormy sky' optical illusion.

And not only will it keep you guessing for at least ten minutes, it also involves adorable animals.

He Tweeted: "That is not a rabbit, it is indeed a Corvid [crow family]. Instead of moving up and down, it sweeps across the eye horizontally like a windscreen wiper and is translucent".

We're not sure exactly what that means, but we're happy to take his word for it.
