Wikipedia article

This article is about an older version of DF.
A giant creature with many eyes and arms to terrify the sea.

Sea monsters are just that; huge, sea dwelling monsters. They can weigh up to 8 tons and come armed with six tentacles, two pincers and powerful jaws. When butchered they produce enormous amounts of food, enough to feed a fortress for a year or more. Their butchering returns are also worth five times the standard value.

Though tough, sea monsters are immobile on land. A fishing chamber can air-drown them, making slaughter and recovery significantly easier. As evil creatures, sea monsters cannot be tamed or trained.

Some dwarves admire sea monsters for their horrifying freakish appearance.
