Category:Animals that can change color

The following animals are capable of changing their colours to camouflage themselves, with varying degrees of transformation. In some, it is very gradual (shedding of fur or feathers) and seasonal, occurring only a couple of times a year.

In addition, many fish change colors, including several species of Gobies and Groupers. It is not clear that all color changes in fish are for the purpose of camouflage. Color changes may be initiated by changes in mood, temperature, and stress in addition to visible changes in the local environment.
