Squirt is a large rock-dwelling slug. This creature is located in the Cotton-Top Cove region of the Northern Kremisphere, and is also the boss of this region during the events of Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble!. The Kongs battle Squirt as Ellie the Elephant in its domain behind the waterfall named Squirt's Showdown. Squirt shoots a continuous stream of water out of its mouth, which will knock the animal off the arena, rather than hurting her; it does so for longer the more it is hit. Ellie can attack by sucking in water from the waterfall and shooting it at Squirt's eyes; she must hit each eye twice to for it to count, and do so three times total to win.
In the Game Boy Advance remake, Squirt can now shoot two streams of water in two ways: it can essentially split the arena in half, or have both streams circling the area at different speeds. It also squirts water in different patterns, and takes two more "hits" to go down. Its streams also look more like water. When defeated, its face falls off and the waterfall no longer has water.
