Watch out for these masters of defense-stick insects! Their secret weapon is being able to hide in plain sight. To protect themselves from predators, they have developed long, narrow bodies. They blend right in to the branches they live on. Some stick insects even have extra growths that look like leaves for more camouflage. Stick insects also protect themselves by being most active at night when it is even harder to see them. They escape from predators by dropping to the forest floor, where they look like fallen sticks and leaves. In this exciting book, you can learn what makes stick insects similar to and different from other insects. Close-up photographs and diagrams reveal extraordinary details about stick insects' bodies, both inside and out. And you can perform activities that help you observe how stick insects live and how they hide by keeping still. Learn more about this exciting member of nature's fascinating Insect World!
