Secrets of Animal Camouflage
Why do some animals blend in to their surroundings? Why do certain creatures have fur, feathers, and features designed to look like the plants and rocks they live near?
In Look Again!, the most well-disguised animals on the planet are gathered together to showcase the range of ways animals try to avoid each other's attention, and why. This eye-catching book invites readers to seek out the astonishingly camouflaged animals hiding in plain sight—then reveals them on the next page!
From lying in wait to avoiding predators, protecting themselves or sneaking up on a foe, each animal in Look Again! has a remarkable skill for evading detection.
