Hiding in plain sight

on May 26, 2013

Previously we’ve discussed how the impala uses camouflage to escape and/or confuse predators. Many animals employ this technique in the wild and sometimes they will be just in front of us and we still can’t seem to see them.

Today we would like to share a few amazing photos from Mr. Art Wolfe that exemplifies exactly how fantastic animals’ camouflages can be.

Try to find the animal(s) in each photo. No help given!

    I still don’t think I’ve got 2 of them (# 4 and #6). I took ages to find the first one, then when I did it was really obvious and I felt quite stupid. It just goes to show how a passive defence like camouflage (including group camouflage like the zebras apparently do) can be far more effective than an active defence like armour or spiky bits.

      My favourite one is the first one. I just love how sneaky animals so tall as giraffes can be.
      If you want to find out where #4 and #6 are keep reading, if not, just ignore this.

      #4
      Look right at the middle of the picture then go a tiny bit to the right and down. There will be a head. It’s an Impala.

      #6
      Bottom right area, just next to the tree. It’s a Leopard πŸ™‚
