Giant cuttlefish are oversized versions of the standard cuttlefish. They are aquatic creatures that will rarely interact with land-dwelling dwarves, however they may squirt ink if threatened.

Despite their size, they apparently retain the ability to be cooked live, assuming your dwarves can find a pot large enough. This may, however, produce significantly less food than a properly-butchered specimen. Because of their internal shell-like structure, giant cuttlefish produce both chitin and raw hide when butchered.

Some dwarves enjoy giant cuttlefish for their ability to change color and their distinctive pupils.
