This article is about the current version of DF.
A huge monster in the shape of a black bear.

Giant black bears are far larger, more powerful versions of the normal black bear. They are solitary creatures, and only three may spawn on a given map. With a [LARGE_PREDATOR] token and a willingness to steal food and booze from your stockpiles, these creatures can pose a threat even to well-prepared fortresses.

Some dwarves like giant black bears for their strength.


The best way to prevent them from stealing your food and drink is to use cage traps. Once trapped, these animals can be tamed. While they can't be trained for war or hunting, they can still make powerful defense animals, especially if they're pastured in the correct area.
