A look at how fish are adapted to live in water, including the use of camouflage. At the Sea Life Centre in Brighton, there are sea creatures of different types, shapes and colours with one thing in common – they are all well adapted to life in water. One such adaptation is the use of camouflage. Some fish use a dull, plain colour to blend in with their background, while others, such as tropical fish, are brightly coloured to match the coral of their habitat.

This clip could be used to look at how animals are suited to the environment in which they are found and how different animals live in different habitats. It could also be used to stimulate discussion about how other animals have adapted to live in their environment.
