Combat

Although it often remains motionless for long periods of time, a dimetrodon is highly territorial and reacts to intrusions with sudden and terrifying speed,

Burst of Speed (Ex): Up to three times per hour, a dimetrodon can increase its land speed to 60 feet for 1 round as a free action. During this round, it gems a +2 dodge bonus to its Armor Class.
