Self Mimicry

It refers to animals that have a body part that mimics another animal. For example, freshwater fish have eye-spots that are large dark markings. They flash these and startle the predator and give it sever,a seconds to escape. They also provide pedators a false target. A butterfly has a greater chance if surviving a attack on the wing than its body.
