SCIENCE WORD OF THE WEEK!
Welcome back students! We here at the University hope you had a lovely holiday if you had the day off yesterday!
We’re starting off the new week with a great word! So who’s ready to learn?
This week’s word is Mimicry: this is when one animal copies the behavior or appearance of an another animal to help protect them from predators.
There are loads of great examples of mimics in nature! I found a few pictures of animal mimics for you!
Here in the U.S, we have a snake called the Eastern Coral Snake, a very venomous fellow. The King snake mimics their coloration to keep predators like hawks away! We have a saying to remember which is which: Red touches yellow, kills a fellow. Red touches black, friend of Jack.
