You'll love learning about these amazing animals...once you find them!
For some animals it pays to be brightly colored and highly noticeable, especially if it frightens away a predator. However, some animals prefer a different approach: hiding in plain sight.
This reader provides a basic introduction to animals that use camouflage. It shows how many animals--in the air, on land, or under the sea--use their camouflage to either evade their enemies or hunt their prey. Whether they're blending in with their environment or looking like another animal altogether, their survival depends entirely on how well they can play hide-and-seek.
