Adamantine Strike (Ex)

An adamantoise’s bite attack is treated as an adamantine weapon for the purposes of damage reduction.

Earthquake (Ex)

As a full-round action, the adamantoise can leap into the air and crash to the ground, shaking the earth with his bulk; all creatures standing on the ground within 30 feet must make a Fortitude save (DC 26) or be stunned for 1d4 rounds.

Turtle Shell (Su)

2/day, when the adamantoise’s HPs is under 50% (107 health), he may activate this ability to increase his defense and heal up at the cost of inactivity. The adamantoise receives Fast Healing 10, DR 15/-, +10 Armor Bonus, and all Elemental Resist 15 for up to 5 rounds but cannot perform any other actions. Blue mages may learn this ability as a 6th level spell (Knowledge: Arcana DC 27).
