This educational gallery frame showcases an Authentic Leaf Phyllidae Mimic species. Also known as ''leaf insects'' or ''walking leaves'', this species is one of the most remarkably camouflaged leaf mimics in the entire animal kingdom. Leaf insects are camouflaged (using mimicry) to take on the appearance of leaves. They do this so accurately that predators often are not able to distinguish them from real leaves. The edge of the leaf insect's body even has the appearance of bite marks. To further confuse predators, when the leaf insect walks, it rocks back and forth, to mimic a real leaf being blown by the wind.
