Batesian mimicry

 

I am not sure if this particular butterfly is a batesian mimic but I am going to use it as an example. Batesian mimicry is when a species that a predator can eat looks like another species that is poisonous or harmful to its predator. I am using the butterfly as an example because batesian mimicry is found in various species butterflies.
