What is A Walking Leaf?
Many extraordinary things exist in nature. Insects and animals change their size and colour according to their requirements. In nature, `camouflage’ means a disguise used by animals or plants to conceal themselves from their enemies. And one of the best camouflage to be seen in the animal world is that used by an insect known as the walking leaf !
This insect spends its life in trees and shrubs, feeding on leaves at night and resting quietly during the day. Nature has given it a set of green wings which are shaped and ribbed exactly like the leaves of the trees in which it lives. This helps it in hiding away from its enemies.
