scarab beetles usually wait beneath the sand until prey passes overhead, then
bursts from hiding and grabs the closest opponent with its powerful jaws.
(Ex) A giant scarab beetle can reduce a victim to nothing in mere seconds.
Any living creature struck by a giant scarab beetles bite attack must make
a DC 16 Fortitude save or take 1d6 points of Constitution damage. A creature reduced
to 0 Constitution by the scarab beetle is consumed completely. The save DC is Constitution-based.
Grab (Ex) To use this ability, a giant scarab beetle 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 automatically deals bite damage each round it maintains the grapple. A grappled
foe is also subjected to the giant scarab beetles desiccate attack each
