Hidden in Plain Sight Animal Camouflage Methods

Squirrels have many predators including large snakes, weasels, coyotes, the red foxes, and raccoons. Also large birds such as hawks, falcons, eagles, and owls are notorious for swooping down and carrying off squirrels. In the city, squirrels may be attacked by cats and dogs. Humans also hunt squirrels. Squirrels have a variety of defense mechanisms and behaviors to ward off threats.

Also known as Thayer's Law, this camouflaging method is associated with the animal's coloration being lighter at the body's underside and darker on the upper side. Upon the fall of light on an object that is three-dimensional and uniformly colored, the underside appears darker and the upperside lighter thus facilitating grading.

Such a shade and light pattern facilitates the appearance of the object as a solid. Its classical form operates through counterbalancing the impacts of self-shadowing. The pattern is very common in several species includes mammals, birds, insects, reptiles, fish, and predators. It is the most common camouflage method used by animals. Active camouflage, sometimes called adaptive camouflage, is the quick adaptation towards the environment of an object. Theoretically, such a camouflage has the potential to offer a perfect cover-up from the visual detection. The application of the active camouflage is spread across the different categories of animals such as reptiles present on land, the sea's flatfish, as well as cephalopod molluscs.

Animals earn themselves camouflage through color change as well as counter-illumination which entails the usage of bioluminescence. It is a kind of camouflage that offers a certain extent of concealment towards moving objects. This is under the condition that the motion facilitates easy detection of objects despite the perfect match with their backgrounds as well as breaking their outlines. The fundamental kind of motion camouflage as well as the type that the term entirely means which includes the mimicking of the background's optic flow of an attacker by the target. It is for this reason that the attacker can move towards the target as it appears to remain stationary from the perspective of the target. The method is totally in opposition to the classical pursuit. Therefore, the target is unable to look at the attacker moving from the point of a landmark.

The looming is, thus, the only evidence that expresses the movement of the attacker.
