Mimicry Some animals and plants look like other things -- they mimic them.
Mimicry is another type of deceptive coloration. It can protect the mimic from predators or hide the mimic from prey. If mimicry was a play, there would be three characters. The Model - the species or object that is copied. The Mimic - looks and acts like another species or object. The Dupe- the tricked predator or prey. The poisonous coral snake and the harmless king snake look a lot alike. The viceroy butterfly and monarch butterfly were once thought to exhibit Batesian mimicry where a harmless species mimics a toxic species.
Could You Tell the Difference? Aggressive Mimicry Some mimics look like something else, not to avoid predators, but to catch prey. The frogfish or angler fish lures its prey to where it can strike. Endangered Species Guide. Rainforest Animals.

Food Chain - Kid's Corner. The Food Chain Every living thing needs energy in order to live.
Everytime animals do something (run, jump) they use energy to do so. Animals get energy from the food they eat, and all living things get energy from food. Plants use sunlight, water and nutrients to get energy (in a process called photosynthesis). Energy is necessary for living beings to grow. A food chain shows how each living thing gets food, and how nutrients and energy are passed from creature to creature. A simple food chain could start with grass, which is eaten by rabbits.
