Day 263: When Cheerios Try to Hide

In the evolutionary scheme of things, predators and prey often adapt to each other’s tactics.

For instance, when fish started swimming upwards to escape hungry dolphins, the dolphins developed “smiling” mouths….the better to catch upwards-swimming fish with.

In the same way, when Cheerios began assuming complex disguises to evade dangerous predators (with feathers), those predators developed keen powers of vision to distinguish the tasty “Cheerio” from the un-tasty “disguise.”

Haha. Nice try, Cheerios, but I see you in there hiding next to those crunchy grain nuggets.

You can run but you can't hide.
Your “hiding” adaptation is no match for my “keen powers of vision” adaptation.
And now for one of my signature predator moves, the "lunge o' death."

Hello, "lunch!"
My predatory instincts are never wrong.
