From the Super Mario Wiki
A Carroboscis is a carrot-like creature that can hover in the air. *Their name is a portmanteau of carrot and proboscis, likely referring to their long pointed noses. These enemies reside in Booster Pass, the entryway to Booster Tower. Although fairly strong, Carroboscis only aid other enemies, such as the Spikester, in battle; Carroboscis never fight on their own or with their own kind. In a fight, a Carroboscis will jump towards the opponent and flash its green eyes, causing damage. A Carroboscis can also summon magical bells to attack intruders with musical spells while using Doom Reverb, Spore Chimes, and S'crow Bell. These musical magic techniques will cause adverse status ailments, including the Silence, Scarecrow, and Mushroom status impairments.
