You have a high IQ if you can spot the hidden crab in under 11 seconds

Only those with high IQ are able to crack this tricky brainteaser in less than 11 seconds. The new puzzle challenges players to find the hidden crab among dozens of seashells of all colours which can confuse the brain when hunting for the animal.

It is important to complete the puzzle against the clock, as working under pressure helps to focus the mind and improve players’ problem solving ability. Those who struggle should look at each shell individually before splitting the picture into sections and scanning each one for the crab.

For players who still cannot find the crab one hint is to look at the bottom left hand side of the picture.

Those who give up can check out the answer in the picture below.

This brain puzzle is an example of an observational brainteaser, one of three main types of brainteasers. Observational brainteasers are complex graphics and images that ask users to spot an anomaly within.

The two other most common types of brainteasers are analytical and mathematical brainteasers.

Analytical brainteasers very often pose a written riddle or puzzle that the user has to solve as quickly as possible. Mathematical brainteasers on the other hand take the form of complex maths-based questions.

No matter what form brainteasers take, they are a great way to stimulate the mind and give the brain a workout.
