They live predominantly on the shores of lakes and on the banks of rivers, where they fish for food.

They are easily startled, and flee from most confrontations. As such, it’s bizarre, wailing cries are heard far more often then masiakasaurus are seen.

Most masiakasaurus fight nothing larger than the fish they prey on, but if cornered, they will respond with a nasty, jagged bite, clamping to an opponent’s flesh and shaking.

Improved Grab (Ex) Whenever a masiakasaurus hits an opponent of Medium-size or smaller with its bite attack, it can make a grapple check without receiving an attack of opportunity (grapple bonus +8, including a +4 racial bonus). It can choose to conduct the grapple normally, or to only hold its opponent in its jaws (-20 penalty to grapple checks, but the masiakasaurus is not considered grappled). A grappled creature takes worry damage every round.

Scent (Ex) A masiakasaurus can detect approaching creatures, sniff out hidden foes and Track by Scent.

Worry (Ex) Whenever a masiakasaurus gets a hold with its bite attack, it shakes the foe violently, mirroring its fishing behavior. Grabbed creatures take 2d6+3 points of damage every round the hold is maintained.

Skills Due to its flexible tail and sure feet, a masiakasaurus receives a +4 racial bonus to Balance and Jump checks. It also gains a +4 bonus to Hide and Move Silently checks made in its native habitat (costal, forest and marsh).
