An Interesting Camouflage Technique: Parrot Fish

Parrot fish are one of the most interesting creatures of the undersea with their colourful appearance. The most important characteristic of these fish, sometimes being as long as 1 meter, is their covering themselves with a jelly-like substance at nights to protect themselves against external effects. This substance camouflages the fish and protects it against its enemies which are active at night and pose a threat for it.
