We went to Whitewater State Park. A bunch of people caught tadpoles and crayfish. At the beginning we did an activity called Camouflage Walk. We learned about animals that have camouflage. Some had body coverings that made them camouflage, and some had a type of camouflage where it was more of a defense mechanism. For example, a squirrel's fur is grayish-brown because they live in the trees, so they blend in with the trees. Another Animal that has a defense mechanism that is kind of like a camouflage is an opossum. An opossum plays dead when in danger to trick the predators into not eating it because it's "dead".
