Giant turtle is a type of monster in ADOM. As fully aquatic beasts, giant turtles can only be found in underwater locations. They are very strong and tough, and can smash doors (should the PC feel the need to create any in the underwater cave).

Monster memory[]

Known primarily as a defensive creature with its giant shell, most of the survivors of this over-sized species are more aggressive due to over-hunting for the shell, which makes an excellent boat hull when hollowed out. They appear lazy, but swim with surprising speed and can snap with their bony tooth-like ridge and powerful jaws before many opponents realize they've moved their head.
