This article is about an older version of DF.
A strange shapeless life form with an orange leathery skin containing a liquid interior. It can secrete its internal fluid.

A Cave blob is a single body/cell organism found in only the deepest caverns. They are seemingly incapable of attacking anything and pose little threat if left alone, although dwarves that see them will interrupt whatever they are doing and run away. Being exotic, it takes the aid of the dungeon master to tame these beautiful unique creatures.

Harmless as they may be, it is still ill-advised to disturb them. Exposure to their secretions or contents is capable of causing mild, short-term harm in the form of painful blisters.

The only products gained by the butchering of a cave blob are a skin for your leatherworkers and blisters for your butcher.
