Improved Grab (Ex):
To use this ability
, the tyrannosaur
must hit an opponent two or more size
categories smaller than itself with its bite attack. If it gets a hold, it shakes the grabbed opponent back and forth, automatically dealing bite damage
each round. Once the opponent stops resisting, the tyrannosaur
attempts to swallow on its next turn.
allows a tyrannosaur
to detect approaching enemies, sniff out hidden foes, and track
by sense of smell.
Swallow Whole (Ex):
If a tyrannosaur
begins its turn with an opponent two or more size
categories smaller than itself held in its mouth, it can attempt a new grapple
check as though trying to pin the opponent. If it succeeds, it swallows its opponent, automatically dealing bite damage
. Once inside the tyrannosaur
, the opponent takes bludgeoning damage
equal to the tyrannosaur
's bite attack plus 1d6 points of acid damage
per round from the monster's gizzard. A successful grapple
check allows the swallowed creature
to climb out of the gizzard and return to the tyrannosaur
's maw, where another successful grapple
check is needed to get free. Alternatively, the swallowed creature
can attack from inside the gizzard using claws or a Small or Tiny slashing weapon
. Dealing at least 25 points of damage
to the gizzard (Defense
20) in this way creates an opening large enough to permit escape. Once the creature
exits, the tyrannosaur
must make a successful Fortitude save (DC 20) or die, whether or not the full amount of damage
was dealt with a single blow. A Huge tyrannosaur
's gizzard can hold 2 Medium-size
, 8 Small, 32 Tiny, or 128 Diminutive or smaller opponents.
