    The Viceroy copies the Monarch butterfly, simply because the Monarch butterfly is actually POISONOUS.

    Therefore, the Viceroy butterfly copies the Monarch butterfly because animals know not to eat the Monarch butterfly because it is toxic, therefore reducing the chances that the Viceroy will be eaten as well.
