Giant cuttlefish are the giant animal counterparts of the standard cuttlefish, over four times heavier than the average dwarf. They are aquatic creatures that will rarely interact with land-dwelling dwarves, however they may squirt ink if threatened.
Despite their size, they apparently retain the ability to be cooked live, assuming your dwarves can find a pot large enough. This may, however, produce significantly less food than a properly-butchered specimen. Because of their internal shell-like structure, giant cuttlefish produce both chitin and raw hide when butchered.
Some dwarves enjoy giant cuttlefish for their ability to change color and their distinctive pupils.
