A gigantic digging creature found underground.

Giant moles will ignore dwarves in favor of locating food or booze to steal. This makes them easy to capture: simply place cage traps around a small food stockpile and wait. If one of these creatures manages to reach the main food stockpile of a fortress, most, if not all, of the dwarves will ignore them, though some dwarves appear to have some manner of phobia, and will panic upon sighting the mole. They have a respectable value as pets, or can be butchered and utilized with dwarven efficiency. Their body parts are worth twice as much as those of more boring animals like deer.

Giant moles can only be tamed and used as pets once the Dungeon master arrives.
