Clever Camouflage: Unseen Animals

Clever Camouflage: Unseen Animals

by Jennifer Reed




Animals are experts when it comes to playing hide-and-seek. Using camouflage, prey and predators alike employ this crucial tactic to defend themselves and ensure their survival. Enhanced with vibrant photographs and enthralling facts, this engaging, yet accessible text focuses on the four basic types of camouflage: coloration, disruptive coloration, disguise, and mimicry. Students will apply their knowledge of the different versions of camouflage as they encounter various species throughout the book and learn why some animals use one type of camouflage as opposed to another.
