v0.34:Naked mole dog
|Urist likes naked mole dogs for their wrinkly skin.|
|This article is about an older version of DF.|
- A large, pale rodent with loose, hanging, hairless skin. It has long teeth and an incredibly powerful bite. It is found underground.
Naked mole dogs are very, very large versions of the real life naked mole rat. They live on the topmost level of caverns, and will attempt to steal food and alcohol when they can. They aren't naturally hostile but will fight back if provoked, likely tearing apart your war dogs in the process. They aren't afraid of your dwarves and will charge straight into your fortress to find food, they seem to travel sporadically. In order to capture them efficiently, make a small food stockpile on the first cavern layer and surround it with cage traps.
Naked mole dog parts are worth the same as most domestic animals, but they have a fairly high pet value. They can be tamed and bred with an animal trainer. Given their average lifespan of 2-3 years, making them into pets (or training them for war) is likely counterproductive.
Naked mole dogs can make for a dog replacement, being generally bigger and tougher and not feeling pain, unlike dogs. However, they aren't as aggressive as dogs, which may make them less attractive.
