There are so many Hidden Mickeys in Zootopia, that the film’s directors Rich Moore and Byron Howard don’t even know where they all are. “I probably know the tip of the iceberg of Hidden Mickeys,” Moore revealed in a recent interview with E! News.

In terms of Hidden Mickeys and other Disney Easter Eggs, Howard discussed the idea of “plussing,” which occurs when a film is passed from script to storyboard. “Every time it passes to new hands, it should get better and better,” he explained in the same interview. “The Hidden Mickeys, in a way, are sort of an example of that. It’s people who care enough to kind of put a little extra into the scene to make it a bit more fun, or say, ‘Hey, wouldn’t it be funny to make these two little elephants dressed as Anna and Elsa from Frozen walking around?’”

Despite not knowing where all the Hidden Mickeys are throughout the film, Howard and Moore were able to disclose the location of the following five:

1. In a cluster of spots on Benjamin Clawhauser’s face:
