Book Review


To survive in the wild, many creatures go to amazing lengths to conceal themselves. Discover how animals make themselves nearly invisible to avoid falling prey to predators or to prepare for an attack on an unsuspecting target. Some, like the trumpetfish, nuzzle in close to the coral reefs that shield them; others, like the tulip-tree beauty moth, transform to blend in with the tree bark on which they settle. Still others, like the orchid mantis, immerse themselves in the petals of flowers where they stand in wait for a tasty bite to eat.
