A gigantic monster in the shape of an orca.

Giant orcas are big--really big. A single specimen can feed a fortress for years and keep bone carvers very busy, but giant orcas appear in groups of 3 to 9. If that massive bounty isn't enough to motivate your dwarves to leave dry land, you're in luck: giant orcas are also prone to beaching themselves on shore, leaving a corpse ripe for butchering. Giant orcas can prove very valuable to any fort on a savage ocean.

Some dwarves like giant orcas for their coloration and great jumps, though one imagines that they admire both from quite a distance.
