Improved Grab (Ex): To use this ability, the shambler must hit an opponent of up to Large size with both arm attacks. If it gets a hold, it can constrict.
Constrict (Ex): A shambler deals 2d6+7 points of damage with a successful grapple check against Large or smaller creatures. The shambler can still move but cannot take any attack actions when constricting.
Electricity Immunity (Ex): Shamblers take no damage from electricity. Instead, any electrical attack (such as shocking grasp or lightning bolt) used against a shambler grants it 1d4 points of temporary Constitution. The shambler loses these points at the rate of 1 per hour.
Skills: Shamblers receive a +4 racial bonus to Hide, Listen, and Move Silently checks. They receive a +12 bonus to Hide checks when in a swampy or forested area.
