Batesian mimicryEdit

In Batesian mimicry an organism appears or sounds like another more dangerous prey so that predators avoid it.  The mimic does actually share the same dangerous or unpalatable traits as the model and need not even be entirely indistinguishable to be successful, thus the name "imperfect."

mimic octopusEdit

The mimic octopus can copy a number of dangerous species although not exactly to avoid predation
