Why is the stick insect called a “master of disguise”?

The body of the stick insect is bright green. When they perch on branches, they look no different from dead branches. Not only that, the body color of bamboo arthropod will change with the change of surrounding environment, sometimes green, sometimes brown, sometimes yellow. In addition, the bamboo insect will change the color according to the change of external temperature. When the temperature drops, the body color of bamboo arthropod will darken; When the temperature rises, its color will brighten again. It was with these unique skills that the bamboo insect successfully deceived the enemy’s eyes and became a real “camouflage master”.
