SPECIAL ABILITIES

Darting Claw (Ex)

Evolved for snatching fast prey, an acrophies is exceptionally quick with its claws. When making a full attack, if an acrophies misses with both of its claw attacks, it can make an additional claw attack at a -2 penalty against any creature within its reach.

Pincers (Ex)

Acrophies can use both claws as a standard action every 1d4 rounds while doing 2d8+22 bludgeoning damage per claw.

Water Dependency (Ex)

Crabs can survive out of the water for 1 hour per point of Constitution. Beyond this limit, a crab runs the risk of suffocation, as if it were drowning.
