The frost giant, H, is a giant in NetHack. As with all giants, they can throw boulders (and can start with one).

Eating the corpse

Eating a frost giant corpse is a source of cold resistance, but they are usually ignored in this respect in preference of cold-resistant monsters that appear earlier in the game (such as blue jellies and winter wolf cubs). You can also increase your strength when you eat a frost giant corpse (by the same amount as for a non-cursed tin of spinach).
