Gnaw (Ex)

If a giant moray begins a round with a grabbed foe, it inflicts automatic bite damage (3d4+13 P & S). A giant moray eel has a second set of jaws in its throat that aid in swallowing: it can make a second bite attack (+11 attack, 1d8+6 P & S) against a foe it has already grabbed.

Grab (Ex)

If a giant moray’s bite attack hits the target’s KAC + 4, the giant moray also automatically grapples the foe as a free action in addition to dealing damage normally. (If it hits the target’s KAC + 13, it instead pins the target and deals damage normally.) The giant moray can maintain the grab either with another successful bite attack or by performing a grapple combat maneuver normally.


Environment warm oceans
Organization solitary, pair, or nest (3–6)

The moray eel is a ferocious predator, capable of holding prey in its primary jaws while a smaller set of jaws inside its throat chews away bite-sized portions.
