21 Spectacular Examples of Animal Camouflage

Camouflage is one of the adaptation skills animals have evolved to carry as a major mean of survival. In nature, every advantage increases an animal’s chances of staying alive, and therefore its chances of reproducing.

In this post, we’ll see how animals blend in with their environment and turn into sophisticated hiders who can change their camouflage in accordance with a change in their surroundings, and sometimes throw predators off by disguising themselves as something dangerous or uninteresting.­

Here are 21 interesting examples of animal camouflage, some of these will give you a challenge!
