- 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.
