Rainbow Grasshopper (Dactylotum bicolor)
It is found in the USA, Canada and northern Mexico. When he is in danger, he begins to show warning coloration, thereby imitating brightly colored poisonous insects and stink insects, which predators try to avoid. Research shows that birds find rainbow grasshoppers unpleasant.

Male tiger frogs change color from gray-green to yellow during the mating season during the monsoon, and their vocal sacs turn blue.
Their loud roars and altered appearance are key tools for attracting females. These frogs are capable of jumping out of the water directly onto land, despite their enormous size.
