Definitions for "BATESIAN MIMICRY"
where one species (mimic) evolves to look like another (model), to benefit the mimic.
Evolution by one species to resemble the coloration, body shape, or behavior of another species that is protected from predators by a venomous stinger, bad taste, or some other defensive adaptation.
