In order to avoid predators, many animals have amazing capacity of camouflage, such as lizards, geckos, fish and bats and so on. The insects can simulate dead leaves, and the animal’s markings provide effective camouflage as well. They cleverly use the surrounding environment as camouflage with colors or shapes, and are exactly like dry twigs, the sand, etc.
