As its name implies, a baby dodongo is the infantile form of the more renowned bipedal dodongo and king dodongo. Its body has yet to form the tough hide for which dodongos are renowned, and it lacks the fiery breath of its elders. Nonetheless its body contains combustible materials that upon its death break down and cause a fiery explosion.
- Bipedal Dodongo, an aged version of this creature of greater size and strength.
- King Dodongo, a Huge and mature version of this monster. Few baby dodongos live to this stage of their life cycle.
