- A fearsome, long-toothed mouth the size of a man's head, flying on bat wings. It is found in deep caves.
Hungry heads are flying pests found in the third cavern layer in groups of five to ten individuals. They are similar to crundles and troglodytes in their abundance and lethality, being different only in that they can fly and have only three outside body-parts (a head and two wings). They do not pose much danger to adventurers or decently equipped military, though their ability to fly can make them a job-interrupting nuisance in fortress mode and you may occasionally lose a civilian dwarf to them if you do not take care.
Hungry heads possess a pet value of 50, but lack the necessary tokens to be trainable. All members of the species possess Legendary skill in climbing. They can't be spawned in the object testing arena.
Some dwarves like hungry heads for their terrifying features.
