Can you spot the fakes? Two of these mountain lions are real, and two are fake – they’re examples of taxidermy. Can you tell them apart? I blacked out the backgrounds, so disregard any fake-looking edges as clues. Also, some of these photos have been blown up and cropped.

What’s interesting is how we decide which one’s fake or real. Do we get a general feeling, or compare one picture to another? What are we looking at when we decide?  (And if you’re a mountain lion expert, you’re disqualified.)
