Air Born (Ex)
When in ?ight, an ancestral dragon turtle gains a +1 morale bonus on attack and damage rolls with ranged attacks.
Breath Weapon (Su)
Cloud of steam 20 feet high, 25 feet wide, and 50 feet long, once every 1d4 rounds, damage 12d6 fire, Reflex DC 19 half; effective both on the surface and underwater. The save DC is Constitution-based.
A dragon turtle 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 dragon turtle’s size, it takes a cumulative –10 penalty on this CMB check.
Gaseous Form (Su)
An ancestral dragon turtle can use gaseous form, as the spell, on itself once per day for up to 24 minutes.
As a move action, an ancestral dragon turtle can pull its extremities and head into its shell. It cannot move or attack as long as it remains in this state, but its armor bonus from natural armor increases by +4 as long as it does.
