Description

"Animal Disguises" is about the secret world of animal camouflage. Learn how some animals use disguises to catch their prey while others use camouflage to avoid being eaten. Read about dangerous predators, such as the Bengal tiger, that use camouflage to creep up on their unsuspecting supper. Discover the great lengths to which some prey animals will go to avoid being attacked, even changing their true shape, color, or nature in order to protect themselves. Look at the American fainting goat, which feigns death, or the harmless milk snake, which looks like the poisonous coral snake.show more
