Think you're good at hide and seek? Then think again, because as you can see from this list compiled by Bored Panda, these guys are the absolute champions when it comes to going undetected. You'll never be able to beat them for the simple fact that they have the biological advantage of camouflage, and this allows them to virtually disappear in order to avoid being eaten by predators. From caterpillars that resemble leaves and geckos the color of bark, to spiders that look like sand and stick insects that look like, well, sticks, these camouflaged animals will confound and amaze you...but only if you can spot them!
