Wikipedia article

This article is about an older version of DF.
An enormous aquatic mammal that lives in the deep sea, surfacing only to take in air.

The Whale is one of the largest animals in Dwarf Fortress (20 tons). They sometimes appear in small groups of 3 to 7 animals.

They can sometimes wash up on the beach, allowing you to harvest their massive corpses. One single whale can feed a whole fortress for a couple of years.

Zombie and skeletal whales that appear in evil ocean biomes can be some of the most terrifying beasts that will ever assault your fortress. [1]
