Lacking legs, the Apis species gets around mainly by a combination of restricted flight and swinging. When born it is wingless, but will grow a pair of wings as it reaches adulthood. These also serve as storage for nutrients, and may be shed if the Orr Kid is in need of food or energy. Its ‘tail’ acts much in the way of long-tailed monkeys, and is also equipped with a venomous sting. What appears to be a cap on its head is actually specialized antennae for olfaction and touch, with an added protective benefit. Like most Orr Kids, its sense of hearing is particularly acute.
