Desert tortoise men are humanoid versions of the common desert tortoise and a species of unremarkable animal people, found in savage desert biomes. They are a little over half the size of an adult dwarf and spawn in groups of 1-5 individuals, who are unlikely to pose any danger to your fortress.

Like other savage animal people, desert tortoise men may occasionally join civilizations, becoming full-fledged citizens who may appear in your fortress as visitors or be playable in adventurer mode.

Some dwarves like desert tortoise men for their shells and their longevity.
