Camarasaurus travels in herds, or at least in family groups.

The most unusual features of Camarasaurus are on its head. The large jaw bones have strong jaw muscles, and the teeth were unusually large for a sauropod. With sharp points that chopped the coarse and tough plants it eats.

When attacked, camarasaurs are capable of using their powerful tails in defense, but are just as likely to run away.

The stamps of a camarasaurus are considered to be bludgeoning and slashing weapons for the purposes of overcoming damage reduction.

Trample (Ex): A camarasaurus can literally run over any creatures in its way that are of Gargantuan or smaller size. Creatures trampled must make a Reflex save (DC 29 half) or take 6d6+15 damage. The save DC is Strength based.
