Reef Lurker (Ex)

Over long years, fantastic coral reefs grow around Deep Tiger Anemones. If the anemone has not moved for that time (as most have not), a character observing the reef must succeed at a DC 30 Life Science check to identify the anemone as dangerous before it attacks.

While thus rooted, the anemone is immune to effects that change its positions.


Environment warm ocean
Organization solitary, pair, or cluster (3–6)

The largest anemones are capable predators despite their plodding movement. They lie in fields of other, usually smaller, anemones and among brightly colored coral societies. These anemones feed local scavengers by attacking large prey or schools of fish, scattering uneaten remains to their neighbors.
