Bulwark beast. The drop is random, just like all other Dungeoneering journals. The notes gives more insight to the behemoth race, and describes the bulwark beast in detail, calling them "essentially invulnerable", placing them in abandoned areas.

The following text is transcluded from Transcript:Behemoth notes (part 2).
4th Age, year 1824. Date unknown.The more I see of the behemoths, the more impressed I am with the diversity of the sub-strains within the same race. The analogy I gave of dogs is more appropriate than I had imagined; numerous creatures of various sizes and psychological characteristics are all part of the same genome and share only a basic shape. The latest strain brought to my attention is one I have affectionately dubbed the 'bulwark beast' on account of its hard, rock-like outer shell, and the adorable shield-like mandibles it employs to protect itself from incoming attacks. These creatures are essentially invulnerable, so long as their shield remains intact, with only magic having even a modicum of effect on them before the shield is removed. These creatures make excellent guardians, so, I shall place them in areas of the dungeon that we no longer concern ourselves with inhabiting, in order to ensure that even the areas we have long forgotten pose a challenge to interlopers.
