Hide and Seek in the Deep Sea

Great informative video from MBARI:

“This video shows some adaptations animals have for camouflaging themselves in the deep sea. Many of the animals in the deep-sea use red pigments to hide themselves because red light is one of the first wavelengths of visible light to be absorbed by the ocean (at approximately 100 meters), rendering any animal using it invisible. The red coloration is visible in these images because high-intensity lights shining from the ROV illuminate the scene.”
