Examples of cryptic coloration contributing to low detection probability in representative habitat where Burmese pythons (Python molurus bivittatus) have been captured. White circles indicate pythons. Photographs illustrate python crypsis in hammocks (a–c), shrubs, mangroves, trees, (c, g, h) and cypress domes and wet prairies (d, e, f). Photo credits: Crocodile Lake National Wildlife Refuge (a, b, h) and U.S. Geological Survey (c–g).
