Sharpshooter Oncometopia orbona

Why They're Called Sharpshooters:

Sharpshooters tap into the plants for food since the sap is mostly water they have to go through lots of it to get enough of the nutrients. The part they don't use is expelled, often with considerable force. I believe that the sap preassure is also a factor: if they didn't release some of the liquid they might burst!
