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.

Alice in Wonderland (2010)[]

In the 2010 movie, 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.
