How do katydids protect themselves from predators like birds, spiders, and snakes? These insects have wings that look just like leaves on a tree, helping them disappear into their surroundings. Hungry animals often pass right by the camouflaged creatures, missing out on a tasty treat. The katydids stay safe by hiding in plain sight! Packed with fascinating facts and photos that will test children's detective skills, this book will engage emergent readers as they learn how katydids are adapted for survival. A section of the book highlights other insects that are camouflaged to look like the plants in their environment.
