A Tako is a small orange octopus that appears in Yoshi's Safari.
Mario and Yoshi encounter Tako in the fourth level of the Light Realm, Crescent Coast. While traveling underwater, they have to fight off an assault from these weak creatures. The Tsūdebiru, a giant jar-like creature, launches wave after wave of Tako, which crawl along the sea floor towards Mario and Yoshi. The Tako can be destroyed with a couple blasts from the Super Scope. After Mario shatters the Tsūdebiru, no more Tako are produced.
