Some remain at the same altitude, but others delve underground and pop back up to shoot projectiles. Telescoping Pumphogs are usually found guarding an important path or object. When stationary, they sit about, facing a set direction. When leaders or Pikmin come into range, they will rise, revealing their tube-like body which inflates.
