From the bizarre camouflage of a Sargasso frogfish to the colour-changing antics of the boneless octopus and the ingenious traps of some killer-plants, see how hiding makes the difference between life and death. Predators and prey are locked into an eternal game of hide and seek - those that succeed are hidden specialists. The sheer variety of hiding techniques is baffling and mind-blowing, while killers that use hidden traps or ways of confusing prey to take their mind away from potential danger are no less exceptional.
