Natural Camouflage

In the nature world, every advantage increases an animal’s chances of survival, and therefore its probabilities of reproducing. This simple fact has caused animal species to evolve a number of special adaptations that help them survive, and keep them from becoming food. One of the most widespread and varied adaptations is natural camouflage; an animal’s ability to hide itself from predator and stealthily prey on others, by blending in with their environment so that others might overlook them. A few sophisticated hiders can change their camouflage in accordance with a change in their surroundings. Some throw predators off by disguising themselves as something dangerous or uninteresting.
