Camouflage

Camouflage protects an animal from predators, and also aids predators in capturing their prey. Camouflage is achieved by means of shape, coloration and behavior that enable an animal to blend with its environment. The camouflage color or pattern can be inherited or acquired - many fish and some invertebrates are able to change color to match their surroundings. Other animals achieve camouflage by covering themselves, such as by burying in sand, or by attaching foreign objects to their body or shell.
