Big Bertha

A cartoon version of Big Bertha.

Big Berthas are a sub-species of Cheep-Cheep that live deep in the sea. They first appeared in the game Super Mario Bros. 3. They carry Baby Cheeps in ther mouths, and occasionally spit them out, to protect themselves. After a few seconds, the Baby Cheep will return to its mother's mouth. Big Bertha's male counterpart is Boss Bass, a fish that swims on the surface, not deep in the water. In Super Mario 64 DS, Big Berthas took the place of Bubbas.
