Tongue (Ex)

A goliath frog’s tongue is a primary attack with three times the reach of its bite.

Its tongue deals no damage but can be used to grab. The frog does not gain the grappled condition when grappling with its tongue.


Environment warm marshes or water
Organization solitary, pair, or army (3–6)
Treasure none

These hulking frogs haunt warm marshlands and river shallows where thick undergrowth can conceal them.

They are dangerous, aggressive predators that gorge themselves on smaller creatures or team up to bring down larger prey. They often climb to the low branches of ancient, mossy trees, picking off prey from the wetland’s floor before their existence is even suspected.
