- A huge monster in the shape of an opossum.
Giant opossums are larger versions of the standard opossum. They can be somewhat dangerous to an unarmed dwarf, though they should pose little threat to even a fledgling military.
Giant opossums can be tamed for pets or bred as livestock for a meat industry, though their lifespan of 2-4 years significantly limits their usefulness. They provide a medium amount of meat, but other, larger "giant" animals provide better butchering returns. Therefore giant opossums are little more than pests to most fortresses, but they can be useful as wild hunting targets.
Some dwarves like giant opossums for their ability to play dead.
