Jungle Puddle is the setting of Stage 4-2 in the Jungle page of Yoshi's Story. It is a river running through the Yoshi's Island jungle and divided into two halves. The first half is a boggy area with an Eel swimming along the river and Bomberry growing on the trees.
The second half is probably the more dangerous area. Blue and Red Blurps are native to this part of the river and will attack their prey in relentless pursuit. Red Blurps act very much like Boss Basses from Super Mario Bros. 3, as they will leap at a Yoshi and eat it, eliminating the Yoshi in one hit. Blue Blurps will spit water at its prey in an attempt to knock it into the water, where it will then swallow the Yoshi whole, just like its red counterpart. To pass this level safely, the player should keep running on the platforms as high above the water as possible. Unless the player is trying to get all 30 melons and/or secrets, they should pass the entire second half of the level without lingering.
Due to the threat of an instant life loss because of the Blurps, this level is considered to be one of the hardest in the game.
The jungle lake was swimming with hungry fish called Blurps. The Blurps would swim and jump, but, mostly, they liked to eat and eat. The Yoshis didn't want to become fish bait, so they quickly swam away.
