Animals with Warning Colors
Created by

Website 863 participants 1,496 spottings

Many animals use colors in the opposite way of camouflage. They have bright colors wich make them highly conspicous on the environment. Potential predators then can relate and remember these colors to unpleasant or dangerous animals to eat. This survival strategy, named Aposematism, is beneficial for the prey and the predator, and have been reported in many animals like insects, frogs, snakes and aquatic animals.
