The only were wolf that really, truly scared me.

So, I’ve been reading for the past hour, arguments about how the bombardier beetle uses his chemical spray on would be attackers. Doe he use three chemicals? does he keep them in one chamber and use a inhibitor chemical to neutralize the hydrogen peroxide and hydroquinone and then at the last moment, use a anti-inhibitor upon release? I mean, if you mix both chemicals together in a glass, there will be no explosion, just a brown cocktail of both things combined. But according to german scientist, Hermann Schildknecht “During the “pop,” The contents of the paired pygidial defense bladders of the bombardier beetle (hydrogen peroxide and hydroquinone) are squeezed in small portions into chitinous chambers, and there they are explosively transformed into oxygen, quinone, and water. This explosion-chamber reaction is catalyzed by enzymes, which are emptied as a dark brown 40-60% albumin solution out of one-celled annex-glands into the front chamber.”
Who knew there had been such arguments about this! It’s just fascinating!
annnndddd, I am addicted to researching things. *sighs*
