What is Mimicry?

Mimicry is a creature’s ability to visually, audibly, or olfactorily “mimic” another creature or plant in order to protect themselves and or to potentially benefit from the misunderstanding. Mimicry is similar to camouflage, however, instead of simply blending into their surroundings, mimics intentionally represent themselves as another living creature. Similarly, camouflage is a creature’s ability to blend into their surroundings. After learning about mimicry, teach your students about camouflage and how to recognize which is which!
