Denver Zoo: Insect Defense

Denver Zoo: Insect Defense

27 Minute Running Time
Genre/Subjects: Educational, Environmental, Family Friendly
Language: English

For insects, danger lurks everywhere. Insects are eaten by many animals, yet they thrive. Insect Defense explores strategies insects use to keep from being eaten. Masters of deception, insects use camouflage to disappear into the environment. They use bright colors and bold patterns to warn enemies that they are poisonous or sting. Harmless insects are protected by mimicking harmful insects. Large eyespots fool birds into thinking insects are larger and more fierce than they really are. Stinging hairs inflict searing pain. Foul-smelling horns erupt from caterpillar heads to scare away predators. Insect defense will open your eyes to the life and death struggle all around us -- even in your backyard.
