You might be asking yourself “who would confuse a bird with a rabbit?” or vice versa…but apparently, there are quite a few folks across the internet that seem to be split on what exactly is in this now-viral video.
A University of Oslo researcher in biological psychiatry in Norway uploaded a video to Twitter on Sunday, August 18th, 2019 – and it has reached even the deepest corners of the interwebs…all the while stirring up a debate all too familiar.
You might recall that just a few years ago, the internet was abuzz trying to figure out if this dress was black/blue or white/gold.
But, today it seems folks have turned their attention to a video of an animal being pet by someone. But what kind of animal is it?
Many see the two pointed ears of a bunny as a person is scratching his nose. In fact, even Daniel Quintana’s original tweet says “Rabbits love getting stroked on their nose.” But that hasn’t stopped the slew of folks claiming that it’s not even close to a bunny.
The ones that believe it’s not a rabbit say that it’s a black raven with the stroking happening on top of the bird’s head.

The truth? Well, it’s a lot simpler than trying to sort out what parts of the animal are “feathered” or “fur.”
A comment in response to Quintana’s tweet points out that if you pay very close attention to the way the animal blinks – you’ll be able to spot what kind it is.
