Charge (Ex)

When a giant frilled
lizard charges, it hisses ferociously, extends its neck frills, and
darts forward on its hind legs, increasing its base speed to 50 feet
for that round. In addition to the normal effects of a charge, the creature
charged must make a DC 13 Will save or be shaken for 1d6 rounds. This
is a fear effect. The save DC is Charisma-based.
Environment warm

Treasure none


This lizard is a true
behemoth—an apex predator found in tropical regions. Many species of
giant lizard exist—other species lack this lizard’s intimidating charge
special ability but might have other special attacks like grab, trip, constrict
(with a bite), or pounce.
