The bisonatee counters the first hostile spell cast with it as the target, as per dispel magic. A dispel check must be made by the bisonatee.

Cousin to the sea cow, the bisonatee also left the land and returned to the water for food and protection. This creature has the head, horns, and neck of a bison, with the large flippers and tail of a manatee.

A bisonatee will affect you long before you see, hear, or sense it. This large, usually peaceful creature floats in the water, feeding off the energy of both land and aquatic prey of varying sizes. It has no interest in swimming quickly or expending additional energy, and prefers to loll about and munch seaweed and other water plants. It has a natural resistance to magic, and given its ability to drain the energy of hostile creatures, it rarely needs to resort to physical measures to defend itself. When provoked however, the bisonatee is quite capable of defending itself with its horns and its large tail, goring or thrashing with such power as to overturn a boat, drown a creature, or knock its attacker unconscious. Bisonatees are thought to be operating on a different plane than typical animals, and to have access to cosmic insights that grant them their sense of inner peace and indifference to violence.
