Now you know why Snuffleuffagus is skulking around in that back alley...
Spoiler (click to show/hide)
Has anyone TRULY figured out WHERE he lives on sesame street?

Maybe he reverts into a homeless guy, and nobody is the wiser!  (this IS new york we are talking about!)
His appearances on the show are few and far between as well-- Almost like it was on every full moon....

This is clearly the case. What does he eat? Has anyone ever seen him eat fruit, or leaves or anything? He is clearly carnivorous, and the reason that there are only puppets and a few humans on that show is HE HAS EATEN EVERYONE ELSE.

Oops Didn't mean to post here.

You are clearly the weremammoth (Snuffaluffagus) gathering intel. We are prepared, fool.

My current fort recently got a combat report of a Yak Bull fighting a Werelizard without an announcement, so something definitely seems to have changed with the new version. The report never mentioned anything about it attacking stealthily though, so I don't know if it was sneaking at any point.

Definitely adds a little more FUN to having a were-creature show up though.

According to the wiki werebeasts in their beast form are trapvoid creatures, but I don't know if this was verified for .40.
I have a goblin werehedgehog who came to my fortress recently. She appeared from stealth at the top of my main stairshaft in werehedgehog form (I did not have traps set up at that point) and sat around there for a while, then turned into a friendly goblin (with tear stained eyes) and wandered around inside my fort for at least a month. Fortunately for the dwarves she only transforming one other time while in a remote part of the tunnels. The war dogs tried to attack her when she first came through the entrance as a freindly goblin (with both her and the dogs continually fleeing in terror), but my conscripted military would not attack. Eventually I mostly walled off the section she was in with a cage trap at the opening, which caught her while still in friendly goblin form.

Cage traps and an arena guarding the entrance. With luck, sieges will come during some creature's cycle and they'll get distracted for long enough to muster your army.

OK SO. Bit of a necro. I managed to capture this same Weremammoth at the cost of a legendary planter.

What shall we do with it? I need creative answers.

This is why you don't text and walk, kids. You fail your rolls for noticing weremammoths right in front of you.

It reminds me of the D&D story about the guy who played as a bear, with all his points in the bluff skill and convinced everyone he wasn't a bear, except for one guy who called the bear out for being a bear, at which point the poor guy was taken away to the jails for offending one of the kings honored guests (the bear).

The Weremammoth is clearly doing the same thing, convincing people he isn't really a mammoth, because really, what sort of mammoth carries a hammer, right?

I managed to catch a werelemur in a cage trap without problem. Sold it to the humans for 200 Urists. Seems like a fair deal.
