Undoubtedly the most feared plant in Hyrule, a manhandla has no roots of any kind, and is strictly carnivorous.
Normally a manhandla has a round, 2-foot diameter body, resembling a mushroom cap, and four leaves sticking out in four directions. These leaves are developed into huge mouths (complete with woody teeth), which it uses to devour its prey.
To destoy it, all four leaves (mouths) must be killed. The remaining body is then harmless, and may simply die from infection, or it may re-grow in a few weeks. The only reliable way to permanently kill it is to burn the remaining body.
It usually has Speed of 4, and Attack rating of 10, but the leaves are very heavy and slow it down, so that once a leaf is destroyed, it speeds up by 1 Speed and 2 Attack.
Every 6 turns, it shoots a fireball with a Penetration Factor of 2, inflicting 1 point of Damage on whatever it hits.
