One of the features that animals possess in order to keep living is the
art of hiding themselvesthat is, "camouflage".
Animals feel the necessity of hiding themselves for two main reasons:
for hunting and for protecting themselves from predators. Camouflage differs from all
other methods with its particular involvement of utmost intelligence, skill, aesthetics
The camouflage techniques of animals are truly amazing. It is almost
impossible to identify an insect that is hidden in a tree trunk or another creature hidden
under a leaf.
Leaf louse that suck the juices of plants feed themselves on plant
stalks by pretending to be thorns. By this method, they aim to trick birds, their biggest
enemies, and ensure that birds will not perch on these plants.
