Theres a Crab Spider that, not only looks exactly like the ants that it preys on, but since the ants have 3 body segments and spiders only two. The spider slices the head of one of its victims and carrys it around on its own head! creepy, horrific and yet elegant.

So cool. Thanks for posting this. I've never seen that one before!
If anyone is interested, it's called 'mimicry.' If you want to see more examples, just Google things like 'mimicry examples,' 'mimicry animals/insects/fish' etc.
