Created with Fabric.js 1.4.5 Animal Mimicry DEF: The action or art of imitating someone or something, typically in order to entertain or ridicule. There are many ways a small animal can mislead predators or prey by disguising itself. The most obvious ways are by...1) looking like a more dangerous animal, 2) looking like something uninteresting or 3) becoming invisible by blending into its surroundings. Sometimes, though, these animals make mistakes, and we humans sometimes unintentionally set them up to do so. Mimicry is when an animal looks the same, sounds the same, or acts the same as another animal. They are basically copycats. EXAMPLES MONARCH The sea slug gives off poisonous, smelly chemicals to discourage its predators. A parasite that goes inside of living organisms and lives off there energy. SEA SLUG VICEROY FLATWORM Poisoness, fly's faster and lives more around mexico. A well know butterfly, beautiful and looks a ton like the vieroy. There are two main ways animals with mimicry can use chemicals to defend themselves.
