Alphatusk

Alphatusk (CR 7)

The most assertive of sabertusks. Though not all packs possess a leader, who led packs of sabertusks are observed to exhibit more aggression. Some have even reported alphatusks rampaging through houses miles from their own natural habitat.

SPECIAL ABILITIES

Impaled Pounce (Ex)

An alphatusk can make a full attack (including its rake attack) when it makes a charge attack, he also deals double damage with his tusks.

Throat-Rip (Ex)

As a full-round action, an alphatusk can deliver a coup de grace against a helpless opponent. If the victim survives the attack, he must succeed on a Fortitude save (DC 10 + half of damage dealt from gore) or dies. Opponents killed in this manner cannot be raised, but Arise, Full-Life, or the like can restore the slain creature to life.
