Talk to Gearmo on the second part of the level and she will ask you to pull a Goomba over to her section. Be careful through the mud and wrangle the Goomba for a star!

For this star, you will have 60 seconds to roll around and smash all the crabs on the sphere. If you fail, you die. Win, get a star.
