B. giganteus noises?

Recommended Posts

This might be a stupid question, but do B. giganteus make a soft hissing noise when disturbed? Because I could swear mine do (along with releasing an interesting smelling pheromone). I've never seen anyone else mention it though.

I'm pretty sure it's through their spiracles. I've looked closely at one doing it before and I noticed the sound came out every time the abdomen tightened (when the insect was breathing).
