These massive carnivores weigh more than 1,800 pounds and stand nearly 9 feet tall when they rear up on their hind legs. They are bad-tempered and territorial. The brown bear’s statistics can be used for almost any big bear, including the grizzly.


A brown bear attacks mainly by tearing at opponents with its claws.

Smite Evil (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 evil foe.

Improved Grab (Ex):
To use this ability, a brown bear must hit with a claw attack. It can then attempt to start a grapple as a free action without provoking an attack of opportunity.

A brown bear has a +4 racial bonus on Swim checks.
