It’s quite interesting when I saw the page of the animal camouflage. I always assume that animal color/pattern are only for preventing themselves being seen by the predators. But I was wrong.
Dazzle Pattern is repeating pattern with high contrast. It is not so useful for hiding but quite useful to confuse the predator when it’s moving (see the figure for Zebra). And I surprisingly found that people have been using this on ship since early 19th. 🙂 This site gives more history information.
