Improved Grab (Ex) To use this ability, a carcharodontosaurus must hit an opponent of up to one size smaller with its bite attack. It can then attempt to start a grapple as a free action without provoking an attack of opportunity. If it wins the grapple check, it establishes a hold and can try to swallow the foe the following round.

Swallow Whole (Ex) A carcharodontosaurus can try to swallow a grabbed opponent of up to two sizes smaller by making a successful grapple check . The swallowed creature takes 2d8+19 points of bludgeoning damage and 8 points of acid damage per round from the carcharodontosaurus’s gizzard. A swallowed creature can cut its way out by using a light slashing or piercing weapon to deal 40 points of damage to the gizzard (AC 15). Once the creature exits, muscular action closes the hole; another swallowed opponent must cut its own way out.

A Gargantuan carcharodontosaurus’s gizzard can hold 2 Large, 8 Medium, 32 Small, or 128 Tiny or smaller opponents.
