    B) The Viceroy Butterfly looks like the Monarch Butterfly.

    Explanation:

    If you look at the list, we can use elimination to narrow down to an answer.

    Definition of 'mimicry' - When an object, living or not, copies another object that does not look similar. Usually for defense.

    A) We know that salamanders squirt toxins at predators, for a way of defense.

    C) The chameleon is using the act of blending in with its surroundings for camouflage. This is not mimicry.

    D) Yes, bears hibernate in the winter, but how does that have to do anything with mimicry? It's not trying to mimic the weather.

    In conclusion, the correct answer is B.
