Hamster, Giant

What should be a tiny, cuddly creature is instead a behemoth of tan fur and over-sized teeth. Its eyes gleam with a feral intensity.

Cheek Pouch (Ex)

A giant hamster can try to stuff a grabbed opponent of two sizes smaller than itself into its cheek pouch by making a successful grapple check. A creature stuffed into the giant hamster’s cheek pouch takes no damage, and can escape by making a successful DC 16 Strength check or can cut its way out by using a light slashing or piercing weapon to deal 10 points of damage to the cheek (AC 11). Once the creature exits, muscular action closes the hole; another trapped opponent must cut its own way out. A Large hamster’s cheek can hold 1 Small, 2 Tiny, or 8 Diminutive or smaller opponents. The check DC is Strength-based.

Immune (Ex)

Giant hamsters are immune to all diseases (magical and otherwise).
