A huge monster in the form of an emu.

Giant emus are very large creatures - between an alligator and a bull moose in size. They'll wander around your fortress surroundings in groups of 2-10, and produce a very sizeable amount of meat when butchered. If you manage to capture a breeding pair, you can make use of a trifecta of properties of the species: excellent butchery returns, excellent egg production, and excellent pet value. Capturing and breeding giant emus is a win-win-win situation, leading to a very profitable birdsplosion.

Some dwarves like giant emus for their size and their inquisitive nature.
