The Sandbelching Meerslug is a boss in Pikmin 3 and the third major boss encountered in Story Mode. It is a light brown, amphibian-like creature resembling that of a lamprey eel, with very small eyes, thick purple lips and two rows of large, sharp teeth. Further down its body, it gets wider and harbors spike-like protrusions. It is one of the largeset Pikmin Bosses to date. Upon attempting to dig up the cell phone in the middle of the arena, the Meerslug appears from beneath the sand to attack the Captains and the Pikmin. It tunnels beneath the side, causing waves of sand to appear across the surface which signifies its location. It will try to trap and eat Pikmin by creating a vortex in the sand that sucks in Pikmin. It can also spit balls of sand, which can plant Pikmin. These planted Pikmin can still be eaten by the Meerslug.
