A tayellah’s natural weapons are treated as epic for the purpose of overcoming damage reduction.


Poison (Ex)

Sting, Fort save (DC 39); initial and secondary damage 2d10 temporary Con. The save DC is Constitution-based.

Pounce (Ex)

If a tayellah leaps upon a foe during the first round of combat, it can make a full attack even if it has already taken a move action.

Improved Grab (Ex)

To use this ability, the tayellah must hit with two of its claw attacks. If it gets a hold, it can rake.

Rake (Ex)

A tayellah that gets a hold can make two additional rake attacks (+44 melee) with legs it normally only uses for walking, dealing 4d6+5 points of damage each. If the tayellah pounces on an opponent, it can also rake.
