Some animals defend against predators by fighting toe to toe. Others rely upon armor and other physical defenses.
However, sometimes the best defense of all is to stay out of sight. Readers (Grades 3-5) will learn all about animal camouflage, from species that simply blend into the background to others that mimic more dangerous animals. They will also discover how these species have developed their camouflage over time and how even powerful predators sometimes rely upon this useful ability.
