The stimulus tell us that effective camouflage enables animal species to survive despite predation. Yet some prey species with few or no other adaptations have endured for a long time with black and white coloration that seems unlikely to provide camouflage. How do we resolve this paradox?

The fact that black and white species are more populous than the species that prey upon them alone is insufficient to explain their survival as it would require us to infer that their numbers alone ensure survival and each member of the species that prey upon them cannot predate multiple members of the black and white species.

Does this help?

Let me know if you have any further questions.
