The wacky world of optical illusions is also a wonderful one. Lucky for us it's always expanding with brilliant new mind-bogglers being made every day. And today's find is no exception, with its magical design that looks more like a video clip than a still image.

The design was posted online by an illusion artist and has been confusing Twitter users ever since. If you're loving this optical illusion and would like to sink your teeth into some more, then check out our roundup of the best optical illusions.
