(Dinosaur) Microraptor

A tiny creature glides through the trees, flittering from tree to tree. It and its companions land in an titanosaur footprint and quickly dart around after insects.

Microraptors are small and adorable dinosaurs that inhabit the temperate mountain forests. They can glide through the trees like reptilian flying squirrels with aid of their four wings and have amazing speed on the ground and in the trees. A microraptor lives in a colony, following the herds of massive sauropods as they move through the trees. The sauropods turn up invertebrates with their stomping and rooting around and thus create perfect feeding spots for the microraptors.

Microraptors will flee anything bigger than they are but have no qualms about attacking a rival pack’s members. They stalk prey such as lizards, frogs, and insects through the undergrowth, pouncing like a cat onto a mouse.

Pounce (Ex) When a microraptor makes a charge, it can follow with a full attack.

Skills: Microraptors gain a +8 bonus to Climb, Spot and Listen checks.

Glide (Ex) Microraptors can glide at a speed of 30 feet for up to 100 feet until either running out of momentum at that distance or stopping early to land in a certain Spot. A microraptor must be 10 feet off the ground on a suitable platform (such as a tree branch) to initiate a glide.

Microraptors as Familiars

Microraptors can be selected as animal companions or familiars. A familiar gives a +4 bonus to Spot and Listen checks to its master.
