Camouflage

Camouflage is the method which allows an otherwise visible organism or object to remain indiscernible from the surrounding environment.

Examples include a tiger's stripes and the battledress of a modern soldier.

Camouflage is a form of deception.

Different aspects of animal camouflage exist due to difference in the sensory abilities of different animals.

Some animals use mimicry, seeming to be something else, such as a leaf, a stone, a twig, or a similar but more dangerous/poisonous animal.
