Smart camouflage

It pays off to closely examine leaves and tree barks: many fascinating little creatures are masters of disguise and blend with their surroundings. Some caterpillars look like the leaves or tree barks on which they sit, others might disguise to look like a bird's dropping.

 


Be careful if you see caterpillars with vivid colors, brushes and hairs. It's a warning for predators that the caterpillar is poisonous
