Animals with Warning Colors
Created by

Juan DiTrani

Website 873 participants 1,560 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.
