In the second picture they probably saw a frog. If not have
them look for it now. If they did spot the frog immediately look
now for something that weighs more than 50 pounds. It could
take a while.

After no more than 15 seconds tell them the thing weighing
more than 50 pounds is a horse.

horse’s head is all that is shown with the horse looking out of
the water. To help you out, the frog’s eyes are the horse’s
