Let’s play Memometic!

Scientists from the National Museum of Natural History in France, and their colleagues, created a game based on the interactions between tropical butterflies and their bird predators.

These creative researchers collaborated in this incredible citizen science project to obtain information on how we perceive the color patterns of butterflies. The participants play the role of the predator whose goal is to learn the pairs of butterflies that mimic each other in order to avoid eating the toxic ones.

Each game takes less than 5 min and you can play as many times as you want! Click here to start playing.
