Anyone who's had their hearts broken once they learned the truth about otters knows that nature isn't always nice.
Here's another beautiful, yet devious, creature: the metalmark butterfly.
As a caterpillar, the metalmark butterfly bribes ants who might otherwise eat it into actually protecting it by sharing sugary secretions with them.
