572nd Show & Tell Competition: Wildlife Defense

Post Fri Nov 13, 2020 2:08 am


Wildlife use various defenses against predictors. Any living critter, insect mammal, fish etc. have various defenses to keep them from being prey.
Examples here are all insects, but mammals, fish, birds etc. may be entered.

Darkling Ground beetle is a stinky sprayer

Camouflage

mimicking the looks of another species - monarchs taste lousy so some butterflies look like them.

Goose Neck barnacles clump tightly together so that only the armored parts are exposed.


Hummingbirds are hyper-vigilant for nearby movement to prevent surprise.


Green Tree Pythons rely on color camouflage and the ability to coil securely on small limbs to stay unnoticed and inaccessible.
