Ladybug Mimic Spider

In evolutionary biology, mimicry is the similarity of one species to another which protects one or both. This similarity can be in appearance, behaviour, sound, scent and even location, with the mimics found in similar places to their models.

For example, take a closer look at this cute ladybug and you’d be surprised to find that it’s actually a spider.
