Discover the secrets behind some of the natural world’s most unusual creatures of camouflage and mimicry. Find out about the chameleon who changes colour to communicate with its friends, the burrowing owl who copies the sound of a fiercer animal to protect itself from threats, and the harlequin filefish that has come to smell like coral to blend in with its surroundings.

You’ll be amazed by how these clever creatures use disguise and imitation to find food, send out warning signals and, most of all, avoid predators!
