FREE Animal Camouflage Cards
When teaching about how animals camouflage themselves you can talk about how:
1. Some animals use their body color, shape, or pattern to blend into the environment.
- by concealing (snowy owl, frog, white tail deer)
- disguising (walking stick, katydid, thorn bug)
- mimicry (caterpillar, snake, butterfly)
- using disruptive patterning (zebra, fish, leopard)
2. By the use of camouflage, prey animals protect themselves from predators.
3. By the use of camouflage, predator animals hide to better catch their prey.
