Training A Bellusaurus

Although intelligent, a bellusaurus requires training before it can bear a rider in combat. To be trained, a bellusaurus must have a friendly attitude toward the trainer (this can be achieved through a successful Diplomacy check). Training a friendly bellusaurus requires six weeks of work and a DC 25 Handle Animal check. Riding a bellusaurus requires an exotic saddle. A bellusaurus can fight while carrying a rider, but the rider cannot also attack unless he or she succeeds on a Ride check.

Bellusaurus eggs are worth 1,000 gp each on the open market, while young are worth 1,500 gp per head. Bellusaurus’ mature at the same rate as (horses, I guess, for the sake of simplicity). Professional trainers charge 500 gp to rear or train a bellusaurus, which serves a master of any alignment with absolute faithfulness for life.
