A huge monster in the shape of a nautilus.

Giant nautiluses are roughly 400 times the size of a common vermin nautilus, making them slightly larger than an adult llama. Giant nautiluses are aquatic creatures; they will rarely interact with land-dwelling dwarves. While they could theoretically appear as mounts during a siege, no ocean-inhabiting civilization currently exists to ride them into battle.

According to the raws, nautiluses have 90 tentacles, copper-based blood, and a shell (though the tentacles are not yet implemented as part of their body structure). Some dwarves prefer giant nautiluses for their shells, others for their many tentacles.
