These creatures feed primarily on carrion and offal, gathering heaps of the stuff in which to build nests and lay eggs. A giant bombardier beetle is about 6 feet long.

Giant bombardier beetles have no interest in other creatures. They normally attack only to defend themselves, their nests, or their eggs.
