Fast Healing (Ex)

A cryohydra’s fast healing ability is double to its current number of heads. A cryohydra loses all fast healing when it is reduced to a single head.

Hydra Traits (Ex)

Any critical hit has a 75% chance to sever a head also you cannot sever the last head but a cryohydra loses its fast healing if they only have one head remaining. A cryohydra can’t attack with a severed head, but takes no other penalties. A cryohydra also loses one of its breath weapons per head lost.

Polar Bulwark (Su)

Once per day, a cryohydra can become immune to physical damage for one round, must have at least two heads to use this ability and those two heads must channel this effect until the end of the round.

Pounce (Ex)

When a cryohydra makes a charge, it can make a full attack.
