Camouflaged creatures in nature turn disguise into an art

In the wild, disguise is a skill required for some creatures' survival. In CGTN Nature's newest series: Asian Elephant Sanctuary, the film crew recorded some amazing animals who blend perfectly with their surrounding environment. To give you an example: some butterflies have learned to mimic dead leaves to avoid predators while certain bird species have become used to staying put for hours in order to imitate a tree branch. Watch this video to see their respective ways to conceal themselves. If you want to learn more about these creatures, watch the full documentary: Asian Elephant Sanctuary Ep. 9: Use disguise and camouflage to fool lurking predators.
