A dire tiger attacks by running at prey, leaping, and clawing and biting as it rakes with its rear claws.
Improved Grab (Ex) To use this ability, a dire tiger must hit 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 rake.
Pounce (Ex) If a dire tiger charges, it can make a full attack, including two rake attacks.
Rake (Ex) Attack bonus +18 melee, damage 2d4+4.
