Disappearing Flounder Challenge

flounder Some of the best examples of camouflage can be found beneath the sea! Just like the skates in the camouflage video below, flounder are bottom feeding fish that blend in with the ocean floor and can disappear into the background. Winter flounder, Pseudopleuronectes americanus, which live here in the Gulf of Maine, can actually change their colors and patterns to match the surroundings. Want a fun game to play with your family and friends? Try the Disapearing Flounder Challenge below and see whose flounder survives the longest in hiding. Good luck!
