- A large, long-bodied grazer with a thick mane that feeds on the tops of towercap mushrooms deep under the earth.
Dralthas typically dwell on the first and second underground layers. They don't actively seek fights but are huge and able to kill a dwarf with ease, often ripping them in half in the process. It is advisable to herd them into cage traps, or keep dwarves away from them if they make their way into commonly used pathways, as they will attack if Dwarves brush by them enough.
Once captured, Dralthas can only be tamed if your fortress has a dungeon master, and have a high pet value of 500. Draltha products are worth three times as much as those from domestic animals, and they are common enough to make capturing a breeding herd easy.
However, they are grazing creatures, with an extremely large requirement for grass. With a grazer value of 24, they are the most difficult domesticated creatures to keep alive for which it is possible to do so (rhinoceros and elephant herds require more, but that amount is impossible for them to eat in time to prevent starvation). If you seek to create a sizable draltha herd, be prepared to maintain an extremely large area of pasture for them.
