Some animals can hide in plain sight. They blend right in with their surroundings. The animals' color, texture, and patterns help it stay hidden. This form of camouflage keeps them safe from predators. This book will show you how animals such as the thorny devil, the chinstrap penguin, the sidewinding adder, and the pygmy seahorse all stay safe by camouflaging themselves in some very interesting ways. This book will allow students to construct an argument supported by evidence for how animals can change the environment to meet their needs.
