Pose, Warn And Strike
Caterpillars of the lobster moth, with warts all over its body, when alarmed, wave their elongated forelegs around giving them the appearance of ants. In addition to this, they can squirt formic acid onto an aggressor from a special gland present in the first thoracic segment, which greatly enhances their mimicry.
