SPECIAL ABILITIES

Capsize (Ex)

A brontosaurus can attempt to capsize a boat or ship by ramming it as a charge attack and making a CMB check. The DC of this check is 25, or the result of the boat captain’s Profession (sailor) check, whichever is higher. For each size category larger than the brontosaurus’s size, it takes a cumulative –10 penalty on this CMB check.


ECOLOGY

The brontosaurus is one of the largest of all dinosaurs. The creature is 65-75 feet long and weighs more than 30 tons. A brontosaurus is so heavy that it needs to spend most of its time in water, so that the water helps support its weight. This dinosaur eats plants, and can only be found in deep marshes or on the edges of swamps.
