This article is about an older version of DF.
A tiny underground monster with large claws and horns. It walks on two legs and is dangerous when encountered in large numbers.


Crundles should present no problems to an experienced adventurer.

While weak individually, crundles often move in large packs and can pose a substantial danger to workers, weavers, farmers or hunters that might be wandering through the underground. However, they tend to scatter when confronted with well-armed soldiers, and so pose little threat to any troops you send to take care of them.

If you rely on traps to defend your fortress, it should be noted that pit traps are fairly ineffective against crundles. They don't hit the ground hard enough. Unless, of course, the ground is flooded with poison, spikes, or best of all, magma.

They can be tamed by an animal trainer, and while they are small and offer fairly few edible parts, their eggs are a good and plentiful source of food. However, raising them for meat requires many breeding crundles to be viable. Their weakness in combat makes them poor war animals, though they do have a semi-respectable pet value of 50.

Overall, the crundle's use is to harass and annoy your cavern dwelling dwarves, and they should generally be used as target practice for military purposes.
