A huge monster in the form of an aardvark.

Giant aardvarks are the giant cousins of the common aardvark, found in savage tropical plains. Like their regular sized brethren, they spawn individually and meander through the map, generally minding their own business. Despite being over 9 times the size of a dwarf, giant aardvarks are just as benign as their smaller cousins and will flee if confronted, making them unlikely to pose a threat unless cornered by your hunters.

Giant aardvarks can be captured with cage traps and trained into pets, possessing the standard value of a giant creature. A breeding pair can be used for a fortress's meat industry somewhat more efficiently than normal aardvarks, as their larger size makes them drop a larger quantity of meat, fat and bones. Giant aardvarks are exotic mounts, so you may see elves riding them into battle in the event of a siege.

Some dwarves like giant aardvarks for their snout and their long ears.

Why the long giant face? :{
