what is countershading in animal help them do
Weegy: Countershading is the pattern of animal coloration in which an animal’s pigmentation is darker on the upper side and lighter on the underside of the body. [ When light falls on a uniformly coloured object such as a sphere from above, it makes the upper side appear lighter and the underside darker, grading from one to the other. This pattern is found in many species of mammals, reptiles, birds, and fish. ] (More)
