A stunning look at the many ways animals camouflage themselves in order to survive, featuring images from the Nature Picture Library.
Through their extraordinary ability to camouflage themselves, animals become invisible to both predators and prey. These incredible images, from the prestigious Nature Picture Library, capture wild creatures “hiding” in a variety of environments. See how polar animals’ white fur blends with the snow; how insects resemble the leaves in the forest; and how an octopus changes the color of its skin to match the ocean floor.
