Which marvellous shapes and patterns can you find around?
Take a while and look around. You may see a tiny dotted ladybug spread its shards and fly from a dandelion leaf to a nearby garden where heart-shaped strawberries are poking their heads. Oh, what is that? A snail is crawling over a hedgehog’s prickly spines, dragging its round spiral shell closer to the strawberries… These are just a few of the many shapes the nature gave to each plant, animal, or mineral. The ground, underground, even the deep dark seas are teeming with waves, dots, stripes, playful spots, curly spirals, or complicated patterns. Even the tiniest ones have a place in nature and a reason to be there. Camouflage patterns help animals blend in with their surroundings, while the more distinct ones serve them during courtship or when spooking an intruder.
