            Abstract

            The article describes various instances of animals using camouflage and mimicry in nature. It mentions animals like the fox, donkey, and jackal attempting to disguise themselves with different hides, but not succeeding. It also highlights how some animals successfully use mimicry for protection or attack. The author shares their experience of observing a praying mantis, specifically the Gongylus gongylodes species, which disguises itself as a flower to attract and capture prey, such as butterflies. The author is fascinated by this encounter and captures their observations through photography, despite missing the moment of the mantis's successful hunt.
