Hmmm, looks like its not just the spiders that love to mimic ants in terms of form. However, unlike spiders, which mimic ants to hunt ants; this cute little katydid display a form of protective mimicry- mimicking ants as protection.
This is because ants usually contain formic acid that tastes really bad, and most predators are not stupid enough to eat them (again)! Smart!
