    Masquerade is a defence tactic in which a prey resembles an inedible or inanimate object thus causing predators to misclassify it. Most masquerade colour patterns are static although some species adopt postures or behaviours ...
  • An unexpected diversity of photoreceptor classes in the Longfin squid, Doryteuthis pealeii

    Cephalopods are famous for their ability to change color and pattern rapidly for signaling and camouflage. They have keen eyes and remarkable vision, made possible by photoreceptors in their retinas. External to the ...
  • Neural control of tuneable skin iridescence in squid 

    Wardill, Trevor J.; Gonzalez-Bellido, Paloma T.; Crook, Robyn J.; Hanlon, Roger T. (2012-07-25)
    Fast dynamic control of skin coloration is rare in the animal kingdom, whether it be pigmentary or structural. Iridescent structural coloration results when nanoscale structures disrupt incident light and selectively reflect ...
