Spreading across the Southern Hemisphere, the potoo bird uses its camouflage ability to hide from predators.

This creature, also known as the ‘ghost bird’, hunts at night, and during the day, it is camouflaged thanks to its feathers similar to the color of tree bark and can sleep safely in the trees.

The potoo bird has eyes that provide excellent night vision. The slits in the eyelids help predators perceive their movements even while they are sleeping.

These birds, which are usually placed on broken tree branches or wooden poles, do not nest. He hides his eggs in the hole he dug in rotten bark.

Potoo birds, which are very hard to notice, feed on flies and insects.

Fossils of these creatures, which are about 38 centimeters long, have been found in Germany and France. But they no longer live in Europe today.
