A dire bat has a wingspan
of 15 feet and weighs about 200 pounds.


Dire bats swoop down upon
unsuspecting prey from above.

Smite Good (Su): Once per day the creature can make a normal melee attack to deal extra
damage equal to its HD total (maximum of +20) against a good foe.

Blindsense (Ex): A dire bat uses echolocation to pinpoint creatures within 40 feet.
Opponents still have total concealment against the bat unless it can actually
see them.

Skills: Dire bats have a +4 racial bonus on Spot and Listen checks. These bonuses are lost if
its Blindsense is negated.
