Summary
"Animals know that in order to survive, they must stay hidden--and, fortunately, nature helps them by providing coloration that camouflages them in their habitat. Award-winning author and illustrator Jim Arnosky looks at this most artful and beautiful aspect of animal life, from the dappled spots on a fawn and the leaf-like markings on a Copperhead snake to the white fur of the snowshoe hare in winter and the changing colors of the octopus. Featuring five large gatefolds, this stunning book covers a wide variety of mammals, birds, insects, and sea creatures, and also offers kids advice on becoming better at spying animals out in the wild"--
