SPECIAL ABILITIES

Swallow Whole (Ex)

A giant flytrap can only swallow whole targets that are at least two size categories smaller than itself. When the flytrap swallows a victim whole, the seal formed is airtight, so the victim risks suffocation. The victim is also considered pinned. A giant flytrap that is grappling or pinning a foe cannot attack other targets with that bite but is not otherwise hindered.

ECOLOGY

Environment temperate swamps
Organization solitary, pair, or grove (3–6)

A hardy plant that grows in areas with poor soil but abundant animal life, this dangerous predator is an immense version of its more common (and much smaller) kin. Whereas the smaller flytraps supplement their growth by catching insects, the giant flytrap does the same with animals, humanoids, and anything else foolish enough to draw too near.

Several stalks are horribly mobile, each ending in a set of green, toothy jaws.

It can lumber slowly along the ground, using its writhing roots like tentacles to relocate to more populous hunting grounds, and is quite canny at blending in with the surrounding foliage. A giant flytrap’s jaws and stalks are swift-moving—it reaches out and snaps at passersby with lightning speed. The plant itself even has a modicum of intelligence, and is capable of limited tactical choices, such as knowing when to break off an attack against a powerful foe.

A giant flytrap’s stalks are 20 feet long, but generally sprawl relatively close to the central mass—a set of full-grown flytrap jaws is 7 feet across. A giant flytrap weighs 9,000 pounds.
