Bombardier beetles are in the family Carabidae and numerous native species are found across the U.S. You can collect your own outside. As for the famous species, they are not commonly found in the pet trade.

I can't imagine anyone would want one. =P

I find them occasionally wandering around our property and you'd think the cats would have learned by now, but oh no. ;)

Bombardiers are very pretty beetles, but yeah, there are lots of similar creatures. There are plenty of other beetles with a defensive spray/chemical explosion, too.
