18 Things That Disguised Themselves as Something Else, and We Almost Took the Bait

A fluffy slice of sweet chocolate cake or a piece of smoked pork belly can make anyone salivate. But life can hit you hard when you realize the delicacy you wanted to indulge in just a moment ago is nothing more than a rock. Our vision can be easily tricked by these cunning objects, so be careful and look through our picture collection to know what to expect.

Here at Bright Side, we had to rub our eyes when we saw these 18 objects that pretended to be something else and almost succeeded.

1. “This tree at my local park looks like copper.”

2. “I found a pebble that looks like a slice of French toast.”
