Summary

Many animals have colors that make them hard to
see. A tiger's stripes help it blend in with tall grass. A frog's green
skin helps it blend in with a lily pad. Snowshoe hares, leopards, sea
dragons, geckos, and owls are other animals that blend in because
of their coverings.

anemone stings small animals with its waving arms. A rock crab
cracks shellfish with its claws, and a sea urchin scrapes food off a
rock with its five teeth.
