Caches may be concealed using unique natural camouflage that is plentiful in a particular area. Hiding a cache using this style or camo cover is named according to the region it was invented or popularized in. Some cachers are inclined to hide their own caches in a characteristic manner or location, which has lead to regional usage of their Geocaching.com handles as a name for a cache hiding style.
