Philosophy Wire: Mimic octopus, mimic fish and the lionfish…

_57732652_octopus_and_jawfish__godehard_kopp__thumb[1]Philosophy Wire by Spiros Kakos [2012-01-08]: First there was the octopus that mimicked fish; now researchers say a fish is copying the octopus. The mimic octopus is known to impersonate lionfish and sea snakes by adapting their movement and colour. But scientists from the University of Gottingen, Germany, have now recorded a black-marble jawfish disguising itself among the octopus' tentacles [source: BBC News]. Who are you mimicking? And whom does he mimics? Who is the “lionfish” who started them all in our society?
