A large monster in the form of a capuchin.

Giant capuchins enjoy raiding your fortress for food and valuables in groups of 5-10, whilst menacing off any dwarves foolish enough to think of stopping them. Regular capuchins are annoying, but giant ones manage to be annoying and dangerous, and can ruin the game for you early in your fortress's life, before you can get all of your things underground. They do have a pretty high pet value of 500, however, so if you manage to capture one, you're probably better off keeping it. Young giant capuchins require two years to grow to full size, and three years to reach adulthood, making them viable livestock for a meat industry.

Some dwarves prefer giant capuchins for their intelligence and social nature.
