Science Behind the Colors

The animal kingdom abounds with bright colors, from the vibrant red, pink, orange, and yellow pigments in parrot feathers to the bold black and orange stripes of tigers. Color plays a multitude of roles in the natural world—it is used to entice, to camouflage, or to warn other creatures. Each book highlights a specific animal, detailing how and why the animal gets its colors, how and why its colors change, and what purpose the colors serve.
