Everybody thinks they look like peppers. Well, they're NOT. They're SQUASHES. Get used to it! Why they run around with their mouths wide open, I don't know. They are a 3D representation of the original creature from SPISPOPD, which also had that unique trait I believe. Squashes are quite fast and deadly. A lightly armed Bouapha surrounded by them will soon be back at the beginning of the level.
