|Cannot be tamed|

- A fearsome, long-toothed mouth the size of a man's head, flying on bat wings. It is found in deep caves.
Hungry heads are flying pests found in the third cavern layer in groups of five to ten individuals. They are similar to crundles and troglodytes in their abundance and lethality, being different only in that they can fly and have only three outside body-parts (a head and two wings). They do not pose much danger to adventurers or decently equipped military, though their ability to fly can make them a job-interrupting nuisance in fortress mode and you may occasionally lose a civilian dwarf to them if you do not take care. It has been reported that a few poorly equipped hunters have taken one down.
Hungry heads may not be tamed.
