Sudden Charge (Ex)

When making a charge attack, an axe beak makes a single bite attack. If successful, it may also attempt to trip its opponent as a free action without provoking an attack of opportunity. If the attempt fails, the axe beak cannot be tripped in return.


Environment temperate plains
Organization solitary, pair, or flock (3-6)
Treasure incidental

Terror birds stand a full foot taller than the average axe beak, and their powerful talons serve as additional weapons.
