Centipedes; Centipedes also have a segmented body like millipedes; however, each segment has just a pair of legs. While millipedes are detritivores, centipedes are carnivorous arthropods that hunt their preys actively. To do so, they have developed two large forcipules originated from the first pair of legs which can inject venom contained in glands in the trunk of the animal. Animals that are dangerous, or foul to eat, usually advertise the fact. This is called warning colouration or aposematism. It is the exact opposite of camouflage. Warning colours tend to be some combination of red, yellow, black and white. Alfred Russel Wallace, a British naturalist, explained it this way, in

Aposematism is the advertising by an animal to potential predators that it is not worth attacking or eating. This unprofitability may consist of any defences which make the prey difficult to kill and eat, such as toxicity, venom, foul taste or smell, sharp spines, or aggressive atism always involves advertising signals, which may take the form of conspicuous coloration, sounds.

Aposematism and Mimicry Some species have evolved similar color patterns to toxic prey, capitalizing on the tendency for predators to learn to avoid conspicuously signaling toxic prey. Mimicry can extend to behavioural and acoustic mimicry, while aposematic coloration can evolve secondary functions in signaling to competitors and potential mates.

Komarek, Nature and Culture: The World of Phenomena and the World of Interpretation,Buch, Bücher schnell und portofrei.The automimicry (also known as intraspecific mimicry) is a special case of mimicry that takes place when an organism transforms some part of its body in order to seems like another part of its own body or even of the body of another member of its species (e.g.
a male that mimics a trait from females). The objectives of this type of mimicry are. Since Darwin's time mimicry is presented as one of the best example of the efficiency of natural selection.
Several species should have been shaped by natural selection to resemble or mimic dangerous or poisonous species. It is supposed that protected by their shape and coloration they deceive their predators.
Thus mimicry confers them survival advantage.
