The shore earwig has found a smelly way to stop insects and birds from eating it.

It squirts out a horrible smelling substance that make the animals spit it out.

Scientists discovered the earwig's disgusting defence when they gave a lizard the chance to eat it.

The bug squirted out a liquid that made the lizard change its mind.
