How does the katydid camouflage itself?
Katydids are insects closely related to grasshoppers. They are masters of camouflage. Katydids are mainly found in the tropics, but some reside in North America.
Most live in treetops, or among the leaf litter on forest floors. They enhance their disguises by deliberately assuming positions that merge with their surroundings.
Whilst some species can resemble leaves are by far the most common.
No two katydids are exactly alike. Some may look dead, some discoloured, and some even look partially eaten!
