View Full Version : Spot the fake picture!

I saw this on National Geographic. The idea is to guess whether the pictures are real or fake. What do you think?




The answers are in the next post

This photo is real. These Caribbean flamingos were taking a rest break in a bathroom! Zookeepers at Metrozoo, in Miami, Florida, herded the birds indoors to protect them from a hurricane. The flamingos survived the storm and were released to their pool near the zoo’s entrance.

This photo is real. Photographer Michael Nichols shot this photograph when he was on safari in Africa. The lion just happened to pick up a video camera. Fortunately, the lion nabbed the camera instead of the photographer.

This photo is real. These male arctic hares look like they are giving a high five. But this is no friendly greeting. Male arctic hares fight over territory by swatting with their forepaws or kicking with hind feet. The loser will hop away.
