0003299: Blind cave bears have front toes on both front and rear feet
The creature BLIND_CAVE_BEAR in creature_next_underground.txt has a slightly erroneous BODY tag which gives it two pairs of front toes (5TOES_FQ) and no pairs of rear toes (5TOES_RQ). It has front feet and rear feet as normal, but all toes are referred to as front toes.

This does not seem to matter at all to the vanilla game. I only noticed it because it creates an error with an animalman mod I was working on. It does seem to be inconsistent with how the rest of the creatures are defined.
Edit the creature_next_underground.txt and remove the ARENA_RESTRICTED tag from blind cave bears. Go into the testing arena and create a blind cave bear and a bunch of cats or something. Note that as the blind cave bear's toes get nibbled off they're all referred to as front toes, not rear toes.
