Being one of the peskiest creatures in the game (most of the time, anyway, with me as an exception xD), creepers can pretty much be found everywhere around you - haunting caves, booby-trapping your base or simply wandering around searching for stuff (you) to blow up. After getting blown up by creepers a couple of times, one would probably be glad that these green abominations don't exist in reality... or DO they? And so, the question of the day: would it be biologically possible for creeper-like creatures to exist in reality?

Well, if we're talking about the creeper's literally blowing up, then the answer is YES. In fact, various insects already use suicide bombing as a last-line defense against enemies and predators (sounds crazy, right?). For instance, Carpenter Ants found in Malaysia, such as the Camponotus saundersi, have developed a habit of exploding when confronted and cornered by predators. With oversized mandibular glands storing and producing an acidic adhesive grown all over their bodies, these ants will rupture their glands by violently contracting their abdominal muscles in order to cause an explosion of sticky, nasty glue. Talk about a gooey mess. Fortunately, suicide bombing hasn't been taken up by animals yet (and probably won't be for a very long time), and you probably won't have to worry about bumping into creepers on your way to school. On the other hand, steer clear of whale corpses as Exploding Animals already exist, even though they might be a bit different from what we're discussing here...

I would not like life very much if there were creepers everywhere... However, it would be kind of cool if we could respawn.
