Dear Team,
please have a look in Task 1, second line, about the right answer.I chose the ''false'', but it was considered as wrong... I mean the text refers "for hiding from both predators and prey"....It means not to be eaten by a big fish but also to eat itself other smaller fish...Therefore the right answer should be ''False''.Am I right?
Thanks a lot

Hello Nikoslado,

The answer would be false if the sentence said something like 'uses camouflage only so that...'. As it is, the answer is true. The fact that the cuttlefish also uses camouflage for another purpose does not make the statement false.
