Eye Slugs are enemies in Phantom Hourglass.[1] It is a small, snake-like creature that charges at Link during his journey through the Goron Temple. They also appear throughout the battle with Dongorongo trying to distract Link, as he is far removed from the actual battle by a river of sand, of which the Eye Slugs can cross. These foes usually appear in groups and are fast, although they can easily be defeated with a strike from Link's sword. If Link does manage to get hit by them, they deal minimal damage.

As Dongorongo may be an evolved form of Dodongo, Eye Slugs may in fact be a young form of Dongorongo, as Baby Dodongos were a young form of Dodongo.
