Don't judge a book by its cover! Or in this case, don't always judge an insect by the way it looks and acts. It might be a sneaky pollinator pal hoping to avoid a predator. In this episode, we're learning about mimics. What's a mimic you say? A mimic has evolved to look like another animal in order to avoid being eaten! And that's important because these mimics are very important pollinators! Chloe and Housten are meeting up with Amanda Stefan from Carleton University to sharpen their observation skills and learn about these clever pollinators.
