A submerged dire hippo that surfaces under a boat less than its space can capsize it by making a CMB check. The DC of this check is 10, or the result of the boat pilot’s Profession (sailor) check, whichever is higher. For each size category the boat is larger than the dire hippo’s size, the dire hippo takes a cumulative –10 penalty on this CMB check.
A dire hippo can hold its breath for a number of rounds equal to 5 times its Constitution score before it risks drowning.
