Answer to Question #90865 in Evolution for rocio

Question #90865
What biological processes could influence the fur color of the rock pocket mice that live on light-colored rocks vs. dark rocks?
Expert's answer

The color change is an example of adaptation. Dark color is an advantage of dark-colored mice over light colored ones at the dark rocks. Because of the dark color, the mice are less visible for predators, so they have better chances for survival. On the other hand light colored mice live at sandy landscape, so they have better chances with the light colored fur.
