You’ve been lying in wait for a long time, completely unseen. The two suns in your sky have risen and set many times now, casting long shadows. Your silky hide has changed its colour accordingly. Finally, your prey draws near, unaware of your presence. Soon, you will have your meal…

Now you see me, now you don’t! Hiding in plain sight is an excellent strategy for many species, both for hunter and prey alike. Like a chameleon, you could make yourself invisible by changing your colouring to perfectly match your surrounding. Or, you could make your entire body resemble something else, like a giant leaf insect.

Camouflage is not limited to the world of plants and animals. Humans are developing technologies to render themselves invisible such as the invisibility shield (see below) or through the use of paint.
