Variant of Antotto

Goronto (generically referred to by Nintendo Power as ants[1]) are a variety of Antotto with shovels and miner hats found in the Macro Zone's first stage in Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins. It attacks by digging up rocks and rolling them at Mario. Goronto's attacks are very similar to the Diggin' Chucks from Super Mario World. They can be defeated with a standard jump or fireball.
