Improved Grab (Ex): To use this ability, the tyrannosaur must hit a Medium-size or smaller opponent with its bite attack. If it gets a hold, it can try to swallow the foe.
Swallow Whole (Ex): A tyrannosaurus can try to swallow a Medium-size or smaller opponent by making a successful grapple check. The swallowed creature takes 2d8+8 points of crushing damage per round plus 8 points of acid damage from the tyrannosaurus's gizzard. A swallowed creature can cut its way out by using claws or a Small or Tiny slashing weapon to deal 25 points of damage to the gizzard (AC 20). Once the creature exits, muscular action closes the hole; another swallowed opponent must again cut its own way out.
The tyrannosaurus's gizzard can hold two Medium-size, four Small, eight Tiny, sixteen Diminutive, or thirty-two Fine or smaller opponents.
A tyrannosaurus pursues and eats just about anything it sees. Its tactics are simple - charge in and bite.
