The Bombadier beetle. It has glands in it's body that produces chemicals. One is Hydrogen Peroxide, the other is Hydroquinine. When agitated, it can combine them and shoot them out at boiling temps. Not pleasant.

Meganeura:  An ancient Dragonfly ancestor with a wingspan of 28" or 70 cm.  Now that's a big bug.
