The Bulldogtopus is an official Maxis creature, present in the final game. It is based on both the octopus and the bulldog from Earth. The name is a portmonteau of "Bulldog" and "Octopus" as well.
The Bulldogtopus does not normally move very fast, but strangely, when locked onto a target, it can charge at very high speeds. It also has a very strong bite, which it uses as a primary means of attacking prey. When being attacked, its hard tentacles protect it from taking too much damage. It is also known to be a satisfactory singer, when put in social situations.
