- A giant amphibian predator found underground near water.
A giant olm (not to be confused with the Olm man) is obviously a very large version of a regular olm. They are amphibious predators, which appear near subterranean water. Aside from being bigger and meaner, they're essentially the same as regular olm. They can dive, and breathe underwater with their gills. While real olms do have eyes, they are supposed to be heavily underdeveloped leaving them essentially blind, but there is nothing in the raws to make the in-game olms hunt through scent or sound, so their eyes work fine and they can be blinded. Real olms spend their entire lives underwater, but the in-game giant variety have absolutely no trouble crawling (snaking?) their way onto land and into your fortress, causing havoc and unexpected
Can be used as a mount by goblin siegers. While this will allow the siegers to travel through water, it will not permit them to swim - if they remain underwater for too long, they will drown.
