Last appearance Alice in Wonderland (2010)

The snap-dragonfly is an insect from Through the Looking-Glass, and What Alice Found There. Its name and form is a pun on a traditional game called Snap-dragon. Its body is made of plum pudding with holly-leaves as wings and its head is a raisin burning in brandy. It makes its nest in a christmas box, and lives on frumenty and mince pie.

In Other MediaEdit

In the 2010 adaption of Alice in Wonderland, its body, head, and tail is that of a dragon with antennas resembling long and thin horns, therefore its name and form is a pun on dragon from dragonfly. They were seen flying around with one of them fighting a Rocking-Horse-Fly.

In the TV series Once Upon A Time in Wonderland, Alice and the Knave of Hearts encounter Snap-Dragonflies upon returning to Wonderland. Alice uses one of them to burn the surface of the lake they were sinking into, solidifying a part of its surface and thus saving herself and the Knave.
