Summary0000585: Average is not always average.
DescriptionThe way how the creature descriptions work is not quite right.

If a bunch of alligators are generated, most of them will be huge, but a few might be average sized, while creatures who are naturally large, but distributed around an average of that large size, will mostly be the average size for their kind, as one would expect.

If the average alligator is huge, shouldn't huge be average for an alligator?

Same effect has been noticed with tigermen.
Steps To ReproduceGenerate some alligators or tigermen in the arena, but it also happens in dwarf mode.
Additional InformationI am sure there are many other species with the same problem, because of how the attribute system works.

This seems to happen with all kinds of animals -- hoary marmots, dogs, etc.
