Wigglevines are a plant-like species, which first appear in Donkey Kong Country Returns. They only appear in the Forest world. In fact, their only appearance is in the level Wigglevine Wonders, where they play a major role in assisting Donkey Kong and Diddy Kong.
As their name suggests, Wigglevines are organic plant-like creatures, which have a vine attached to them. They're also capable of flying, and come in different sizes. The Kongs can grab hold of a Wigglevine's vine, and it will carry them. The large Wigglevines can handle the Kongs' weight, and carry them past large pits. The small Wigglevines, however, can only handle the Kongs' weight briefly before their vines break. As a result, they're not capable of transporting the Kongs like their larger brethren.
Although the Wigglevines can help the Kongs get past abysses, they can't defend them from enemies, such as the Tiki Zings. Therefore, the Kongs have to constantly move around to avoid the enemy attacks.
