- A large monster in the form of a jackal.
Giant jackals are the giant cousin of the jackal, appearing very rarely in savage tropical shrublands, grasslands and savannas, in packs of 1-5 individuals. Giant jackals are more than 20 times the size of normal ones, the size of an elk or a donkey, and thus a minor threat to your dwarves. Armored militia should be able to take them down with relative ease, though. If you've ever dealt with giant dingos, giant jackals are both slightly smaller than these, and come in smaller packs.
Products made from giant jackal parts are worth twice more than those made from common animals.
Some dwarves like giant jackals for their resourceful nature.
