Which image shows camouflage as an adaptation?
In the 1800s, in London, peppered moths were both light colored and dark colored.
The dark-colored moths were easy to see on the light-colored bark of trees, so predators found them easily. Then, the smoke from coal burned by people made the trees darker. This helped the dark-colored moths camouflage better. The dark-colored peppered moths were now more likely to survive to pass on their dark-color trait to their offspring. Therefore, the number of dark-colored moths got bigger over time.
