What is a camouflage look like?
Asked in Care of Fish
Why would a fish look like a rock?
Camouflage. Many animals use camouflage to enable them to blend in with their environment. If they are prey, they are hiding from predators. If they are predators, they employ camouflage so that they may sneak up on their prey. Fish are no different. Stonefish, for example, cannot swim quickly, so they camouflage to look like a rock in their surroundings in order to fool potential predators.
