comment How does the Cuttlefish camouflage itself accurately despite being color-blind?
@terdon I'm suggesting that there is no need to see the colours. If other (strictly non-visual) sensory inputs are an indicator of lying on a sandy surface then these could be used to promote the "correct" choice of colours.
