Tree Turret (Ex) While climbing a tree, pillar, or similarly-shaped terrain feature, a snap vine can brace itself to throw objects. As a single standard action, the snap vine can grab and throw any unattended object within its reach that it is able to lift. This object counts as an improved ranged weapon, except the snap vine does not count as being nonproficient in its use. A snap vine using this ability to throw a loose branch or similar piece of debris makes the following ranged attack: improvised weapon +3 (1d6+1).

A snap vine is a carnivorous plant that can slither like a snake. Although its movement is generally sluggish, a snap vine bursts into violent motion when striking prey, lashing at its victim’s legs and feet like a bullwhip. Its low blows have a tendency to knock a target’s feet out from under them, while its wicked thorns are noted for their ability to draw blood. When perched in a tree, a snap vine will instinctive throw loose objects at prey, though it prefers melee combat, and will usually close in on prey that comes within 20 feet.
