The giant bombardier beetle was a variety of giant beetle.[1]

DescriptionEdit

Bombardier beetles were generally about 4 feet (1.2 meters) long.[1]

BehaviorEdit

Unlike many beetles, bombardier beetles were solely carnivores, feeding mostly on carrion and gathering carcasses as places to lay their eggs.[1]

EcologyEdit

Bombardier beetles were often solitary creatures. They dwelt in forests.[1]

Bombardier beetles were found in the forest of Cormanthor.[2] They were also found in Dragon's Eye in the Spine of the World.[3]

CombatEdit

Bombardier beetles were able to expel acid from their rear ends. The sound of the beetle expelling acid could be deafening. They could also emit a fire cloud to protect themselves, a few times per day.[1]

UsesEdit

The substances inside the beetle could be retrieved from a dead specimen to create small explosives.[1]
