Can you Spot the Animals Camouflaged in These 5 Images?

Camouflage is nature's gift to a few lucky animals who can either use it to escape predators or sneak up on their lunch. It's truly astounding how well some animals blend in with their environments. Can you even see these animals in their closeups? Meet 5 of the world's craziest camouflagers.
Do You See The Baron Caterpillar?
Native to India and Southeast Asia, the Baron Caterpillar has spikes and a bright green color when young that allow it to camouflage itself among leaves and avoid the predators that would prevent it from becoming a butterfly.
Can You Find The Pygmy Seahorse?
Pygmy seahorses are so tiny, at only 2.7 cm tall, that only seven have been found since their discovery in 1969, and six of those were discovered after 2000!
Do You See Both Of The Underwing Moths In This Photo?
Underwing moths have two sets of wings. The hidden set, only visible when flying, is brightly colored with orange, yellow, red, and white patterns. But when they're still, they're almost impossible to spot against most trees. They even know which trees look most like them and choose to land on those for their safety.
Can You Distinguish The Leaf Tailed Gecko From Its Surroundings?
The leaf-tailed gecko is so good at hiding, we only know of 8 of them. They may look dried up and dead on the outside, but rest assured they are not actually rotting leaves and are, in fact, vibrant, living lizards.
Do You See The Reef Stonefish Here?
Reef Stonefish use their camouflage to sneak up on prey, which is unfortunate for the prey, since they're incredibly poisonous.
