Status Extinct

Mizupo are a species of medium-sized salamander once found in the Lanayru Province—at the very least in the Lanayru Sea—and likely across much of the old world which may have been a far wetter environment all-around. However, when Lanayru dried out and became a desert, the Mizupo went extinct. Their legacy lives on through the Electro Spume which adapted to survive in the new environment. Presumably the other Spumes adapted in the same manner from other pockets of Mizupo or related species, leading to the Cursed and Magma Spumes of the Eldin Province. Deku Toads, seen millennia later, are physically similar to the Spumes and may in fact be descended from them, or at the very least the two are closely related.

The spitting ability of the spume family reveals its origins in the Mizupo. Mizupo are as aggressive as other known Spumes but take only water into their mouths to use as a makeshift projectile, akin to Archerfish. Mizupo are also shy, and will try to dive under the surface to avoid enemies; however they do not move deep enough out of the way to avoid passing ships, which will kill them. Skippers once used cannons to kill the creatures as well, which would crush their fragile bodies with a single direct shot.
