A species of plant native to Hyrule
Deku Babas are a canivorus species of plant native to Hyrule. They are considered weeds and minor pests while young and can easily be removed, but when they reach maturity they can become a real problem. These plants have an incredibly strong bite and are known to attack people. Even if their stems are cut, these plants can still live for a short amount of time and jump to move around. They can then re-plant themselves with little difficulty.
The most effective way to kill a Deku Baba is to either blow it up or sever the top part of its jaw from the bottom.
