This article is about the current version of DF.

Beaching is a characteristically odd behavior carried out by creatures with a [BEACH_FREQUENCY] creature token. These aquatic animals will occasionally strand themselves on land, where they are immobile and unable to breathe. This is intended to model the poorly-explained real-life behavior of similar animals; see cetacean stranding on Wikipedia for more information.
