... Chromatophores Crypsis is a common behavioural–morphological adaptation aimed at minimizing detection by predators or prey ( Caro, 2005a , b ; Ruxton et al., 2004 ). Visually active organisms are skilled at detecting movement, which often indicates the existence of a potential danger or of an object...
