Epoxy Slug. Two tubules on the slugs back end secrete resin and hardner separately. Two long pedipalps mix the two together. As it hardens, bugs, and leaves and crap get stuck in in the glue. It hardens, and sixty minutes later the slug circles back around and feasts on what he's caught.
This is sort of inspired by every attempt I've made to spray paint or lacquer or polyurethane something outside for ventilation. Its almost impossible not to catch bugs that way... the two part glue is so it doesnt cure inside the slug of course...

Stripped Slimander (Cryptobranchus Stickius)
This amphibian has a unique way of both getting around and repelling enemies.
White milky secretions from its suction cup like feet act as a glue, enabling the Slimander to climb both vertical surfaces, and to hang upside down without ever loosing its grip.
Secretions left behind from either its foot prints, or sloughed off its body will harden within minutes creating a bond that engineers liken to regular epoxies. However the Slimander never gets stuck and in fact uses its extremities to rub this “glue” over its body keeping enemies from making a meal out of them. No one wants to have permanent lockjaw after squishing around one of these in your molars. Scientific studies continue in both the glue like nature, and the resistance the creature has to its own secretions.

So, i'm going to try and enter C.O.W every week from now I think. Start as you mean to go on and all that.
This week's is a particularly oozy one.
edit: still tinkering away.... C&C welcome.
The glue maker is an insect that wishes it were an invertebrate. It has developed incredibly strong muscles along its side which it uses to drag itself around like a slug, its legs now used more as mandibles than apendages to move with. It secretes an incredibly sticky mucus from the nodules lined along its spine, has a teeth filled maw on its underbelly and next to no appreciable vision.
The glue maker is usually found in caves or any other dark, damp place with a roof. When first arriving at a suitable hunting spot the glue maker covers its body in its gloop and uses the adhesive qualities to climb the walls and attach itself to the ceiling. It does this by hooking its claw like legs through the thick, viscous ooze and suspending itself as on a trapeze. Once it is secured the glue maker begins excreting a prodigious amout of mucus which forms a large puddle beneath it. When an unlucky creature happens to wander into the glue puddle the glue maker is alerted to its presence by its long dangling antenae which sense the hapless victims struggles. The glue maker then unhooks its claws and, in a surprising show of agility, flips in the air to land on its lunch. The whole process is then repeated ad infinitum.

And guess what? he doesnt shit it out! the bubbly organs on top of his head make it and he secretes it on the ground where he walks (like a slug) to leave traps for his prey. carnivorous.

Well, apart from anything else Sofa you should probably just edit each new picture into your original post rather than posting fresh each time. Keeps the thread neat and tidy for everyone else, see?
