Viewer right (zebra left).

No, wait.... the middle one. Yes. Look very carefully. There is a middle one.

Or perhaps I am lying.

The above sentence may be a lie.

It's gold and blue.
 
2020-07-10 8:51:57 PM  
Left.

The neck is wrinkled.
 
2020-07-10 8:52:31 PM  
Wait! Our left or the the zebras' left?!

DAMN IT
 
2020-07-10 8:56:08 PM  
It must be the left. Look at the direction of the ears. If it were the one on the right, the one on the left's ears would be backwards.
 
2020-07-10 9:35:29 PM  
Right one. Sunlight is coming from the top right corner.

Shadow is on the left side.
 
2020-07-10 9:46:08 PM  
The ears give it away, left zebra
 
2020-07-10 10:06:34 PM  

Redh8t: Left.
Next!


Done in one. When you zoom in you can see that the focus between the right cheek (of the zebra's face) is in focus while the body just behind it is a bit blurry, compared to the body behind the left cheek. Left body has focus change as one would expect, as well as the neck area is wrinkled, also as one would also expect.

Are we talking politics?

It's obviously the one on the left because the other one is a croc.

The left, because the left-most ear is facing in such a way it can only be the right zebra's ear.

markie_farkie: It's gold and blue.


It's saying 'Laurel', consarn it all!
 
2020-07-10 11:27:21 PM  
Yes.
 
2020-07-10 11:29:56 PM  
Right. Left one is behind him. Shadows and angles of necks help explain it, imo. If the right head was behind I don't think there is physically anywhere for it to be but inside the left one.
 
2020-07-10 11:32:54 PM  
Meh, photographer says left. That's fine. I wear glasses.
 
2020-07-10 11:32:58 PM  
There's a third zebra!
 
2020-07-10 11:34:24 PM  
Shadow on the left neck tells me the zebra on the right is in front and it's his/her neck.

2020-07-10 11:51:54 PM  
Easy left, just think about how necks work and how long the neck on the right would need to be to make that turn.
 
2020-07-10 11:58:22 PM  
Great, so the Zebras get a Voltron

Also the ears, the left-most ear is clearly in the back and belonging to the zebra on the right.
 
2020-07-11 12:15:53 AM  
None of the above.  It's really a surprise quagga.
 
2020-07-11 12:51:02 AM  
trick question. it's two conjoined zebras.
 
2020-07-11 1:00:51 AM  
There is clearly a thirdzebra in the photo, behind the other two. Maybe it is hishead.
 
2020-07-11 1:18:36 AM  
Left based on the ears.  If the right were facing forward I doubt we'd see the ear opening of the left zebra's left ear.

But these are silly and once your brain convinces you it's one way you can stuck.

bababa: There is clearly a thirdzebra in the photo, behind the other two. Maybe it is hishead.


Also definitely this.  Could be a butt-shot though.
 
2020-07-11 2:37:24 AM  
The third "zebra" is either ceramic, stone, or a type of cloth.
/Wouldn't be surprised if it's a monument, or possibly a driveway centerpiece. ...
 
2020-07-11 4:17:23 AM  
The ears are the key... Or was it the other way around?
 
2020-07-11 6:50:16 AM  
I'm going to wait for the followup when left shark zebra reveals all.
 
2020-07-11 7:35:40 AM  
What zebra?
 
2020-07-11 8:17:13 AM  

LaChanz: What zebra?


Ze garment that holds ze boobies?

Verrry interesting....
 
2020-07-11 9:49:35 AM  
Neither.

The one on the left is turned towards the camera and listening to it, but since it's directly in fron of him it's out of his field of vision.  Zebras, like horses, cannot see what is directly in fron, or directly behind, them. The one on the right has his view of the camera blocked by his friend's head. There is also a 3rd zebra in the background, whose head cannot be seen in this photo.
 
2020-07-11 12:08:26 PM  
I'd say left.
 
2020-07-11 8:45:39 PM  

SoupGuru: Left.

The neck is wrinkled.


Not only that, but look at the second set of ears, the ones from the zebra not looking at the camera. He either has his head turned to look not only back, but over his shoulder, so going beyond 180 degrees. Sure, they can turn like this, but if there was something that interesting, the main zebra would be looking too, most likely. The one on the left is looking at the camera, the one on the right is looking slightly to his own left, based on the ears.
