Visual Brainteasers 1

So we've done a good bit of visual illusions on this blog. Now we are switching things up a bit to make it a bit more interesting...enter: "visual brainteasers." Below you'll find the first few of these visually-challenging puzzles. Oh, if you're having trouble seeing these puzzles in the first place, then please get an appointment with your optometrist! Enjoy and good luck!

Visual Brainteaser #2: Stolen Coins 

While playing at the park one day, Bobby the Red Fox, who lives nearby, heard a loud siren. Police were swarming at a nearby museum, lights flashing. Bobby quickly learned that 200 gold coins were stolen from the museum. Nobody saw who took the coins, but Bobby suspects that it was one of the animals in the park. Can you tell which animal is the thief?
