This creature looks like a yeti or abominable snowman; eight feet of fur and muscle. It doesn't move to attack right away...in fact, it shows no sign of noticing you at all. It simply stands, arms crossed over its chest, blocking the path to the door. Maybe there's some way to get around it.
From stone gargoyle, nnnwwuwsed.
