Struthiosaurus is
a small, island-dwelling nodosaur with good natural armor and spikes on
its tail and forequarters. Halflings sometimes raise them as beasts of burden
and as mounts, and also for their eggs, which some consider a delicacy.

The average
struthiosaurus is about 7 feet long and 220 pounds in weight; however, specimens
of up to 13 feet in length and 500 pounds or more in weight have been recorded.


When attacked,
Struthiosaurus lashes out with its spiked tail. If grappled by an opponent,
it attempts to impale that opponent on its back spikes.

Spikes (Ex):
A struthiosaurus has spikes on its back, which it uses to
impale opponents attempting to grapple it. When grappling, they deal damage
as Medium armor spikes.

as Animal Companions

A struthiosaurus
makes an appropriate animal companion for a druid of at least 4th level.

as Special Mounts

Some local
halfling paladins swear by struthiosauruses because of their built-in armor
and spikes. A struthiosaurus makes an appropriate special mount for a paladin of at least 5th level. A struthiosaurus can only carry a Small rider.
