Most colourful animals in the world!
The animal kingdom is home to a riot of colours, but these ones take the trophy easy-peasy!
Butterflies are cute and colourful, right? Well, those bright colours are not just for style; the monarch shows its poisonous state by them!
The sailfish is a simple, blue fish…except when it’s hunting! When it seeks prey, it’s dorsal fin lights up like a traffic light, confusing it’s prey, and helping guide other sailfish to the hunter!
Remember the phrase, you are what you eat? Well, flamingos take it literally: their pink colour is caused by the algae they eat!
Sometimes colour is not enough! The male bird of paradise uses an exotic dance routine to woo females, and show off its bright plumage!
Okay, we all saw this coming…but what you didn’t know, is that chameleon don’t change colour on a whim: their skin pigments react to the temperature and light of its surroundings as well as its mood!
