This six-legged, eyeless creature sucks on plant juices by wrapping its "tail" around stems and piercing them with its needles (it has also been known to drink soda by piercing paper cups, so beware). This is actually the front end. The "tail" is also used to feel its way forward. The other end has a breathing tube. Air is pulled in the bottom and expelled out the top. The lungs are inside. At times, the air can also be pulled in the top and expelled out the bottom. The fin on the back is rich in capillaries allowing the creature to cool down when it is blown on. It can also be used to shade the creature or "flap" rapidly to make noise that attracts mates.
