A huge cave monster with hundreds of feet moving along the bottom of its long body. In place of a head, it has an enormous toothy maw.

Voracious cave crawlers are quite nasty creatures that are seen from time to time in caverns. Although much weaker than other, more reliable sources of fun, a group of the little bastards can spell doom for a poorly equipped fortress.

When they spawn, these beasts will attempt to travel to buildings and destroy them even if they aren't in its line of sight. Because of this trait it is relatively simple to capture cave crawlers: restrict access to your underground buildings, but allow a way through that has cage traps built in the way. They will path through the cage traps and get caught. They are exotic pets, but can be tamed with generally no problem. They can be used as a mount by goblin siegers, and are quite dangerous.[1]
