  1. stone mimicry plant

    A stone mimicry plant is a type of plant that has evolved to visually resemble a stone or rock as a means of survival and camouflage. This evolutionary adaptation, called mimicry, often occurs in harsh, arid environments where water is scarce and protection from heat and predators is essential. These plants often have reduced leaves or leaves that are modified into spines, and their coloration usually matches that of the surrounding rocks to enhance their disguise. Examples of stone mimicry plants include Lithops and various species within the Aizoaceae and Euphorbiaceae families.
