Invisibility in the Animal World

Here is a truly brilliant method of invisibility: shifting your reflected light to a wavelength that the viewer can't see. 

Over in Terramagne, there are multiple versions of invisibility.  Some of them bend light or create complete transparency, which means that without compensatory powers, the person can't see.  (I have one blind character whose invisibility power actually prevented his retinas from developing properly.)  Some are based on perfect camouflage, mimicking the pattern around them.  Having seen this UV version in action now, I'm sure that's how some of the Chameleon Skin folks are doing it.  But they would still be visible to someone with Keen Senses who can see UV light.
