Aquatic creatures have the [AQUATIC] creature token, and so are restricted to life underwater. An aquatic creature that is located in water less than 4/7 deep or removed from water entirely will air-drown; aquatic animals caught in such situations even briefly will be momentarily winded. Usually such situations are the result of dwarven interaction, except in the case of beached whales. Note that aquatic creatures in cages (or aquariums for flavor) do not currently drown, unless they were drowning when they were placed or caught in the cage.
