Transcript of Camouflage

Camouflage By Alex Dant Fox Octopus Camouflage Chameleon Tiger Thank You For Watching!! Snake Foxes change colors in the summer and the winter as a way of adapting to their surroundings. They will use camouflage to hide from predators and they change to the color white in the winter to blend in with the snow. In the summer, they change to the color brown. This way, they blend in with the ground and the rocks. Ermines and rabbits will also change color seasonally. A well-known user of camouflage is the
chameleon. The chameleon can change colors to
blend in with its background to hide from predators. In the picture shown above, the chameleon is hiding under the branch using the branch's color to blend in and hide from the bird. The octopus is one of the most impressive camouflage users in the world. An octopus will use camouflage to hide or wait for food to float by. An octopus will use special skin cells to change its color, opacity, and texture to fully blend in with its surroundings. The picture shown above shows an example of a three step transformation from almost invisible to visible. An octopus will use anything to hide, from coral to the seafloor. It can blend with almost anything. Snakes use a less impressive version of camouflage then the ones shown earlier, but it's effective. They will use camouflage to hide and wait for prey to come by. They could also use camouflage to hide from predators with a desire to eat them. In the picture shown above, this snake is hiding among the leaves, concealing itself well enough so that most prey would not be able to see it. That goes for predators too. Camouflage is valuable to the survival of snakes worldwide. Tigers, while not known for using camouflage as well as the rest of the animals shown previously, use camouflage in the way of hiding themselves well enough so that most prey won't be able to detect them. In the photo shown above, the tiger is fairly well hidden among the long plants in the wilderness of Asia, presumably looking for something to eat. The tiger is one of the only animals using camouflage that uses it almost completely for hunting purposes.
