Formidable predators, dragons(also known as wyrms and drakes) are massive in size with fearsome teeth, deadly breath, vicious claws, and hides like stone. Dragons generally make their home in caves and mountains, far from humankind, but when they come close to people, their huge appetite is generally a source of conflict.
It's enorm-moth! This newly-emerged atlas moth shows off its huge 30cm wingspan
Atlas Moth is the largest moth species (wing span of 30cm) in the world. Most commonly found in Southeast Asia, the moth is so named because its wing patterns are said to resemble maps. The moth's wing tips also appear to resemble a snake's head, which may be a tactic to scare off predators. Despite its grandeur, it will only live about a week. by Amy Oliver, dailymail.co.uk. #Atlas_Moth

Like squids and octopuses, cuttlefish propel backwards and shoot out an inky liquid when they sense a threat; it makes the water cloudy and confuses the mollusks’ predators. The cuttlefish’s inky liquid was once used by artists as the pigment sepia. Cuttlefish also are used as food and fish bait, and the cuttlebone is often given to caged birds as a mineral supplement. :(
