Amazing animals with natural camouflage ability

Nature has blessed animal wildlife with many special defense mechanisms that resulted in their natural selection. One of these natural mechanisms is the Camouflage. Some of the amazing animals with this natural camouflage ability are as follows.

Baron Caterpillar:-

Baron Caterpillar is mostly found in India and Southeast Asia. After hatching from their eggs they are only 4 mm in length with small spikes on their body but after 4th or 5th stage of their growth cycle they can grow up to 45 mm in length with spikes getting much larger in size too. These spikes along with caterpillar’s bright green color allow it to camouflage itself as a leaf for both avoiding predation or for hunting prey.
