This rare species uses its antennae as wings.
The scarpanids originally lived on the ground, sporting poorly developed vestigial wings. This species has developed enlarged antennae that can be used as makeshift wings. Scarpanids are attracted to the sight of large groups of pikmin in cavalry formation and will swoop down to seize them. However, scarpanids don't eat pikmin, and they will drop any seized pikmin after a short time. The reason for this behavior is unknown, but I look forward to future research in this area.
Remove the wings, marinate in a well-marbled steak for several hours in a chipotle marinade, then charbroil to perfection.
