If an animal has a dull back and bright undersides, the Unken Reflex may be used. They flash the bright colors, and frighten the predator.


Crypsis

VALUE OF COUNTERSHADING

  • Many aquatic/marine animals are dark on top and light on the bottom. This is so predators approaching from the top see a dark back against a dark background, and predators from below see a light venter against a light sky.


Mimicry
mimicry

the resemblance of an animal species to another species or to natural objects; provides concealment and protection from predators
