mimicry

If an animal is not noxious to potential predators, why not look like an animal that is?

It can be used as a disguise like you make yourself look like your in the group when your not. 

When one animal copies the appearance, actions, or sounds of another animal, the first animal is called a MIMIC. You can think of it as a copycat! 

Usually, an animal will MIMIC another to avoid predators. If it can trick its enemy into thinking it is something less tasty or more dangerous, it will survive. 

Some are 

Sea slug and Flatworms 
Bee and Beetle 
Monarch and Viceroy (Both belongs to ButterFlies) 
Caterpillar to Snake 
Scarlet Kingsnake and Coral snake
