The Whiptongue Bulborb is a Pikmin enemy introduced in the game Pikmin 3 for the Wii U. It is a type of Bulborb with a brown spotted back and an anteater-like tongue. It was one of the first new enemies introduced.
Whiptongue Bulborbs behave a lot like other Bulborbs. It tends to wait around a certain spot looking for food. The bulborb will start attacking as soon as it sees Pikmin. Its tongue gives it a lengthy range over other Bulborb species but it is still avoidable and it takes longer to attack. Like other Bulborbs, its main weakness is its eyes and attacking them will cause it to drop any Pikmin it has in its tongue. attacking its back is a fair strategy as it cannot reach there,

Pikimin 3 Prima Guide
"As its name implies, the Whiptongue Bulborb uses its long tongue to snatch up any Pikmin unfortunate enough to be caught in the attack. When you encounter a Whiptongue Bulborb, flank the creature and send your Pikmin charging in to attack."
