Epsen Westum, who's the head brewer at Westum Hjemmebryggeri, from Fredrikstad, Norway decided to give his own twist to the puzzle.

Somewhere in the crowd is the metal-loving panda camouflaged amidst the black and white faces. Westum posted the image on Facebook and wrote: Most people have seen the 'find the panda among snowmen' picture. I was inspired to make one myself, only with black metal artists.

Some people claimed to have found the animal way too easily while others still struggled. One person wrote in the comments: Easy but so awesome! Great job with the drawing. To which, Espen Westum replied: Yeah, I made it just for fun. Not to be a big challenge. But Westum's picture did end up going viral and lots of people were interested in finding the panda.

Did you manage to find the animal amongst the metal crowd? Not yet? Well here's the answer: the animal is tucked away three rows down from the top on the far left.
