Balloon Bug

The Balloon Bug was nicknamed as such due to strange balloon-like glands on the creature's back. The glands fill with a lighter than air gas, which allows the oversized insect to achieve flight. The wings are for propulsion and steering. The Balloon Bug can go into a "stealth mode," by fluttering it's wings quietly, which is the usual method used to attack to sleeping prey.
