Seeds that Fly

The seeds of the Javan Cucumber have wings. They’ve developed actual wings that can fly up to 100 meters with absolutely no wind, and much farther if there’s a breeze. The seed moves through the air in the same way as a butterfly flies, utilizing air currents, stalls, dips and glides to carry itself for miles.
