Some butterflies and moths have adopted extraordinary disguises to help them avoid detection. A few even disguise themselves as other animals, mimicking their appearance or behaviour to trick predators.

Meet a Museum scientist who studies butterflies and discover some of the incredible ways they use mimicry and camouflage to survive. See spectacular examples from the collections and find out how these disguises influence their lives and the lives of those they mimic.
