Camouflage is blending into a natural environment, but mimicry is pretending to be another living thing to survive. Mimics use shape, pattern, sound, smell, and/or behavior to fool predators or prey. This amazing book will thrill readers of all ages with photographs of some of the “masters of mimicry.” Some are simply unbelievable! Mimics such as mantises, leaf insects, snakes, frogs, butterflies, and ocean animals will make readers wonder if what they are seeing is truly real! Teacher’s guide available.

What are nature's copycats?

“A part of the Big Science Ideas set, this slim volume is a storehouse of intrigue...Fascinating! —Arlington Independent School District, 08/12 “What are Nature’s Copycats? By Bobbie Kalman is a fabulous non-fiction book...Wonderful format with Table of Contents, Glossary, Index, and captioned photographic illustrations support short chapters explaining camoflauge, mimicry, and animals that use this to survive. The last chapter is on bird mimicry. (Unexpected, but interesting.) I will have to buy the Climate and Extinct titles in this series as they will be supportive of our curriculum for elementary in our district!” —Debra Gantz, Media Center Specialist, Walled lake Consolidated School District, 04/12
