Mongolian Death Worm

Species Traits

Bonus Feat: A Mongolian death worm gains Weapon Finesse (bite) as a bonus feat.

Death Touch (Su): Any creature grappling with a Mongolian death worm must make a successful Fortitude save (DC 10 + 1/2 the worm’s Hit Dice + its Constitution modifier) each round or gain one negative level that lasts only until the grapple ends (no saving throw needed for removal).

Most Mongolian death worms use this ability purely in self-defense, but some of the larger ones learn that it can be a swift means of killing prey.

Poison (Ex): Bite—Fortitude negates; save DC 10 + 1/2 the worm’s Hit Dice + its Constitution modifier; 1d6 Con/1d6 Con.

Poison Spray (Ex): Once every 1d4 rounds, the Mongolian death worm can spray poison in a 15-foot cone. See above for the effects of the poison.

Tremorsense (Ex): A Mongolian death worm can automatically sense the location of anything within 60 feet that is in contact with the ground.
