Bombardier Beetle
By Ambika Singh
Bombardier beetles can be found in woodlands and grasslands where there is ground cover for them to hide under.They are found in North America, various parts of Europe, southern England and various parts of northern Africa and Australia.
The eggs are often laid in a safe location that is protected from predators, such as a pile of mud, or dead, decaying plants. Once the larva hatches out of the egg, it immediately begins a pattern of consuming food and molting.
It has an average life span of only several weeks.
These beetles have two chambers located in the abdomen, containing different chemicals that when combined, create a foul smelling spray that reaches temperatures of 212°F.
