Camouflage By Crypsis

See also: Crypsis

Crypsis means blending with the background, making the animal or military equipment hard to see (or to detect in other ways, such as by sound or scent: for details, see Crypsis). This can be achieved in many different ways, including:

  • General resemblance to background
  • Disruptive patterning (breaking up outline)
  • Eliminating shadow
  • Crypsis by behaviour
  • Crypsis by changing skin pattern, colour
  • Countershading
  • Counterillumination

These ways of achieving crypsis are described below.
