I've always liked dungeon books to sell, because as you say, they don't consume a slot, they're all high-value, and they're light. The only issue is, you're probably not looking for cash all that much by the time they show.

IMO, there's no such thing as over-protecting the books. I think it's ludicrous that you need to carry around a whole library.

Big animal menaces...
Shelob, the later Qs (including the Emperor Q), Dracolisk, the Phoenix, Lernaean Hydra, Jabberwock, Ungoliant, Tarrasque, Draugluin, Huan, Carcharoth, Winged Horror (not all that deadly, but I don't like them), greater basilisk, elder aranea

Note, too, that several of these *only* have Animal, including the Tarrasque, Lernaean Hydra, Huan, and I believe all the Qs.

There are a number of others that I didn't list, but which can be a problem on or around their starting levels, like the bigger hydras.

I pity the fool who approaches any of these with *slay animal* as his preferred choice in weaponry.

Weapons with animal slays (and particularly ammo with animal slays) can be helpful though.

I never said you'd want to melee them. You just asked for the menaces.
