Giant albatrosses are the giant animal variant of the common albatross, found in savage oceans. They spawn in groups of 1-10 individuals, and will fly around aimlessly, fleeing when approached. They are roughly four times larger than a dwarf, but are unlikely to provide a threat to a fortress.

Giant albatrosses can be captured in cage traps and trained into pets. Like all other giant animals, they provide a decent amount of food and bones when butchered, but breeding them is a subpar choice, due to the fact they lay only one egg at a time. Also like other giant animals, they are considered exotic mounts.

Some dwarves like giant albatrosses for their large wings.
