Do you know what pareidolia is?

Well, if you don’t know, I’m here to fill you in!

Pareidolia is when you think you see something in an image but it isn’t really there. Like seeing a face on a wall, or seeing Jesus on a piece of toast, or something like that.

We all experience this phenomenon once in a while, and here are some really great examples of what I’m talking about.

Let’s take a look.

1. The hand of death is reaching out for you.

You see it, don’t you?

2. Do not disturb that little owl.

Well, if this isn’t the cutest thing I’ve ever seen…

3. Wow, that’s crazy!

Is it a man or a dog? You tell us!

4. Of course a cat would be responsible for that.

We tried to warn you…

5. I see a man…

And I think he has a pretty cool beard…

No thank you!

7. I see that one, for sure!

Do you think the dog realizes this?

8. Be careful when you put that thing in your mouth.

You might get more than you bargained for.

9. That might not be a good sign…

You should get a second opinion.

10. I feel like I’m being watched…

By a cat.
