Camouflage is an art, and some animals use it with talent.
Whether survival, of hunting Or simply of tranquility, many animal species have the gift of camouflaging yourself to perfection. Three factors intervene in the art of hiding: physiology, The behaviour and the hunt.
Genetic first determines the possibilities for camouflaging animal species. From generation to generation, hiding becomes easier and more natural. Animals are capable of take the color of their natural habitat, while others blend into the background with a coat, feathers or an ideal body.
It may also be that the best way to hide either in a group. Indeed, when the lion passes near a herd of zebras for example, it does not distinguish the animal in itself, but rather a large striped mass. Some fish profit group effect to return unidentified and potentially dangerous colored signals to a predator.
