Orange Animals

While orange is a bright color that might hinder an animal in the wild, it serves some purpose. It warns predators that the creature they are targeting may be poisonous or bitter, such as the monarch butterfly. Others have developed this coloration as camouflage thanks to their environment, like several tiger species. Some birds, like cock-of-the-rocks use their bright orange plumage to attract a mate.
