A species of plant native to Hyrule

Additional Info

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.
