I have some questions about which of these are legal plays when attacking a creature that has the mimicry attribute.

Setup: I have a creature that only has mimicry on it. It is attacked by another player who has a creature that only has carnivore on it.

Let's say I have:

  1. A creature that only has the swimming attribute.
  2. A creature that only has the burrowing attribute, and is FED.
  3. A creature that only has the high weight attribute.
  4. A creature that is protected by its symbiont.
  5. A creature that only has the camouflage attribute.
  6. A creature that only has the hibernation ability attribute, and is using it.

Are these legal plays to force a player to attack an invalid target?

I understand the camouflage one possibly being OK, since we thought about how chameleons aren't always camouflaged, but what about animals that violate the theme more expressely, like swimming?

I heard arguments while playing that playing mimicry to force a player to attack a high body weight creature was ok because "animals puff up all the time to look bigger than they are", and hence, avoid getting eaten.
