      Can anybody explain to me the process in which an animal changes its color either completely or just a shade?

      Most will be by a signaling mechanism. Mutations can also cause color changes, but those are permanent and not part of the normal function. Then again, transposons could cause changes that are part of the normal function of the animal. Mmmmmm. . . . yes, try to be more specific. Give an example.

      I believe cephalopods change colour by expanding and contracting vesicles (sacks) containing coloured fluid.
