Blurps are a species of goggle-eyed Goofangs, a type of Cheep Cheep. They appear to be primarily tropical fish, being found along the waters of both Dinosaur Island and Vibe Island, but also found along the coastal waters of the Turtle Zone in the Mario Land; assuming that Mario Land is an island along the coast of the Mushroom Kingdom (due to Mario's ease of availability in saving the princess), it can be assumed that they can be found in some numbers of Ocean Side as well, which is an archipelago off of the Mushroom Kingdom's coastline and one of said kingdom's provinces.
Two species of Blurps also inhabit the coastlines of Yoshi's Island, and have lost their goggled appearance. It is possible that the fries still have goggles and that they simply lose them earlier in life as opposed to their more common siblings.
Blurps are green scaled fish, related to both Cheep Cheeps and other Freshwater Bass, despite living in a marine environment.
Unlike true goofangs, Blurps and other goggle-eyed goofangs have developed a goggle-like structure to protect their eyes from their sensitivity to water. This structure appears very similar to actual goggles, and may be formed by some sort of calcified silica.
They are weak, aimless creatures, and do not actively adventurers that happen to be exploring their waters unless affected by the vibes of Vibe Island. They will however bite or otherwise injure any person foolish enough to come into close contact with one, likely as a defensive maneuver. Fireballs shot from a Fire Flower and even whipped capes can kill a Blurp.
As they mature, they grow in size and their goggles disappear, possibly dropping off like baby teeth or simply being reabsorbed into the body to reuse the nutrients necessary to build the structure in the first place. These adult Blurps are noticeably more aggressive than the juveniles. Mature Green Blurps look quite similar to a mature male Cheep Cheep, which is known as a Boss Bass. The less common matured Red Blurps and Blue Blurps found around Yoshi's Island also are similar to Boss Bass and Big Berthas, but their pupils have not become slits. They are assumed to be mouthbrooders just like their True Cheep Cheep cousins, though no direct evidence of this has been recorded.
