Combat

Legendary animals are no larger than normal animals of the same kind, but they are considerably more dangerous in combat.

Legendary apes are aggressive and territorial. They drop on opponents from trees to rend flesh with their powerful claws and teeth.

Rend (Ex): If a legendary ape hits a single target with both claws, it latches onto the opponent's body and tears the flesh. This attack deals 2d8+15 points of damage.

Scent (Ex): A legendary ape can detect approaching enemies, sniff out hidden foes, and track by sense of smell.

Saving Throws: A legendary animal has all good saves.
