Visibility to what?  Slugs?  Bees?  Bats?  

Internal organs of animals are not colored?  I challenge you to cut your liver out and show me that this is true.  I'm blinded by the tard.

Beefsteak fungus looks just like an ox-tongue, down to the marbling.  Tastes better though.  Not sure where you think this is all going.

Could it be assumed that any color is inherent to the material of the internal organ.  External coloration strikes me as being due to pigments that exist for the purpose of changing the otherwise 'natural' color, something missing for internal organs.

Just asking.
