3This six-limbed beast stalks forward with a fluid grace. Barbed quills run along its back, and its eyes glow with a blue light.

A lesser bandersnatch can move through difficult terrain when it charges.
The quills and barbs on a lesser bandersnatch's tail cause triple damage on a critical hit from its tail slap. A lesser bandersnatch adds 1-1/2 times its strength bonus on attack rolls when using its tail slap.
Confused, range 30 feet, Fortitude DC 23 negates. A lesser bandersnatch can direct its gaze attack against a single foe as a swift action. This is a mind-affecting compulsion effect. The save DC is Constitution-based.
As a swift action, a lesser bandersnatch can make a single attack with a bite, claw, or tail slap. A lesser bandersnatch cannot lash out on the same round it charges.
Whenever a creature takes damage from a lesser bandersnatch's tail slap attack, quills, or quill defense, that creature must make a DC 24 Reflex save or a quill lodges in its flesh, causing the creature to become sickened until the quill is removed. Removing one quill requires a DC 20 Heal check made as a full-round action. For every 5 by which the check exceeds the DC, one additional quill can be removed. On a failed check, a quill is still removed, but the process deals 1d8+4* points of damage to the victim. The save DC is Dexterity-based.
A lesser bandersnatch is always considered to be on its home plane, regardless of what plane it finds itself upon. It never gains the extraplanar subtype.
Any creature that strikes a lesser bandersnatch with a non-reach melee weapon, unarmed strike, or natural weapon takes 1d8+4* points of piercing damage from the lesser bandersnatch's quills and suffers from the lesser bandersnatch's pain attack.
With a snap of its tail, a lesser bandersnatch can loose a volley of four quills as a standard action (make an attack roll for each spike). This attack has a range of 300 feet with no range increment. All targets must be within 30 feet of each other. Launched quills regrow in a single round, during which the lesser bandersnatch's defensive abilities are unaffected.
