Ability Drain (Su): A fang dragon does not have a breath weapon, but its bite permanently drains Constitution by 2d4 if the victim fails a Fortitude save (DC ).
Increased Damage (Ex): Because of their sharp claws, teeth, and scales, fang dragons deal damage as if they were one size larger. This ability does not enable the dragon to use attack forms normally not allowed to a dragon of its size. Thus, a very young (Small) fang dragon deals 1d8 points of bite damage and 1d6 points of claw damage (as if it were Medium-size), but cannot make wing attacks.
Trip (Ex): A fang dragon that hits with a claw or tail attack can attempt to trip the opponent as a free action (see Chapter 5 of the Player's Handbook). If the attempt fails, the opponent cannot react to trip the dragon.
Sound Imitation (Ex): A fang dragon can mimic any voice or sound it has heard, anytime it likes. Listeners must succeed at a Will save (DC equal to that of the dragon's frightful presence) to detect the ruse.
This subtype usually is used for elementals and outsiders with a connection to the Elemental Plane Air. Air creatures always have fly speeds and usually have perfect maneuverability (see the section on Movement).
