Camouflage is the act of an animal having a specific appearance that makes it hard to see. Camouflage can be useful to all sorts of animals.
- Prey animals can use camouflage to hide from predators who want to eat them
- Predator animals can use camouflage to either ambush their prey, or to stalk them.
- Stick Bugs (have the color, shape and texture of a stick, letting them easily avoid detection from birds)
- Flower Mantis (resembles orchid flowers, allowing it to easily ambush it’s prey)
- Bearded Dragons (these lizards live in the barren Australian outback and have brown and tan scales )
- White’s Tree Frog. (These little frogs live in the lush rain forest and have green skin)
- Leopards (their spots break up their outline, allow them to successfully stalk and hunt other animals)
- Tigers (their long black stripes, can trick the eye into thinking they’re the shadows of long blades of grass)
