In the adaptations of the butterfly, I am explaining the three which are meant for increasing their defense. The first adaptation is warning colors, which means that there are very attractive and vibrant colors in the butterflies but still animals are afraid to catch them. The reason is that red and black colors in Monarch butterfly and yellow and black colors in Swallowtail butterfly give the signs of poison. (View picture) Second adaptation is the Batesian mimicry, which means that some non-poisonous flies do not have poison but they are blessed with such colors which give a signal of poison. Third adaptation is the False eyes which means that some butterflies also have large circles on their wings which appear as eyes. These rings can make their predators scare that they are looking them. In this way all these adaptations act as defensive mechanisms for butterflies.
