Acid (Ex): An ooze drake's body exudes acid at all time. This acid deals 1d6 points of extra acid damage whenever it hits in melee or, when grappling, during each round when maintains a hold. Only stone is unaffected by this acid.
Creatures or weapons striking an ooze drake also take this damage (no save allowed).
Improved Grab (Ex): To use this ability an ooze drake must hit a creature of its size or smaller with a claw attack. It can then attempt to start a grapple as a free action without provoking an attack of opportunity
Amphibious (Ex): Although ooze drakes are aquatic, they can survive indefinitely on land.
Skills: An ooze drake has a +8 racial bonus on any Swim check to perform some special action or avoid a hazard. It can always choose to take loon a Swim check, even if distracted or endangered. It can use the run action while swimming, provided it swims in a straight line. Ooze drakes have a +2 racial bonus on Hide and Move Silently checks. *The racial bonus on Hide checks improves to +4 when in marsh terrain.
Creatures with the aquatic subtype always have swim speeds and thus can move in water without making Swim checks. An aquatic creature can breathe underwater. It cannot also breathe air unless it has the amphibious special quality.
This subtype usually is used for elementals and outsiders with a connection to the Elemental Plane of Earth. Earth creatures usually have burrow speeds, and most earth creatures can burrow through solid rock.
This subtype usually is used for elementals and outsiders with a connection to the Elemental Plane of Water. Creatures with the water subtype always have swim speeds and can move in water without making Swim checks. A water creature can breathe underwater and usually can breathe air as well.
