This Giant Sap Fly had an unusal environmental adaptation; it didn't fly. Feeding only on sticky tree sap, this creature gave up the use of its wings realizing predators and pests never ventured near the viscous, sticky tree sap. The grid structure of the wings eventually became a useful way for the fly to carry extra sap in the event it needed to travel the long distance to feed on another sap tree.

• The cast piece can be cleaned with a tiny amount of rubbing alcohol and a soft cloth.
