All species of geckos have highly developed mimetic coloring. Most are brown-gray, black, or greenish brown with skin that resembles tree bark. We have 2 variants through which these geckos are camouflaged: the leaf shape and the bark shape. Some have developed a flap of skin along their body, known as a “dermal flap.” When they lie down against the trees during the day, it casts shadows and makes their outline practically invisible.
Spiders that look like crabs, fish camouflaged to appear invisible, or even fish that can fly, are just some of the wonders of mother nature. Whether it’s escaping predators or courting a female, some animals have developed such extraordinary bodies and adaptations over time that they could make any plastic surgeon jealous.
We at GIGGAG have asked Mother Nature to show us some of her most transformative animals and here is the result.
