The amazing thing about animals is… basically everything. Some are powerful, others are sneaky, and then some are just flat out majestic. But they all have one thing in common: an instinct to survive. And the way they survive is sometimes so perfect that you can’t help but be in awe.

All of the animals below beautifully blend into their surroundings. Some so they can better stalk their prey, and some so they can avoid turning into a predator’s next meal. Check these out.
