The brown pudding, P, is an amoeboid NetHack monster. Like its more powerful cousin, the black pudding, it will divide when hit by an iron weapon. It will also rot organic items with its attack. It can be used for pudding farming, but is not usually done so as it is difficult to divide many times due to its relatively low hit point value. The brown pudding's corpse is acidic when eaten, but can convey poison, cold, and shock resistances.
