Color Trivia

I am a huge lover of bold color,

last year I taught a mosaic class with a concentration on color. That course had me studying fun color trivia facts. This year I want to continue to celebrate color in every possible way that I can. This month my assistant Brittany and I have started sharing color trivia over on our Art Paw Face Book Page. Today I will post just a couple of trivia image posts that I created for our news feed. Below that I will share some animal related color trivia … enjoy.

Animal Color Trivia Facts:

• Bees can’t see the color red, but they can see all other bright colors. Red flowers are usually pollinated by birds, butterflies, bats, and wind, rather than bees.
The scarlet ibis gets its color from the red crabs it eats
Did you know that Goldfish lose their color if kept in dim light. Similar to humans, they need sunlight to keep their pigment.
Mosquitoes are attracted to the color blue twice as much as to any other color.
A squid can change color and pattern in 700 milliseconds-almost in the blink of an eye
•  Schizochromatic (what a mouthful!) is a term meaning that an animal does not have a color that it normally would have.
• If a creature is xanthochromatic then it had more yellow in it than normal.
