This creature resembles a 30-foot long dragon composed of stone and earth. Its great wings glisten like polished stone. Its eyes are deep gray and its roar seems to shake the very earth itself.

When an elemental earth dragon slays an opponent, it dehydrates the flesh with its breath weapon and pulverizes the bones. The residue is then absorbed into the dragon's body. An assimilated creature can only be restored to life using wish, miracle, or true resurrection, but even then, there is a 50% chance that such powerful magic fails.
An elemental earth dragon's breath weapon is a 50 ft. cone of scorching sand and gravel.
An elemental earth dragon gains a +1 bonus on attack and damage rolls if both it and its foes are touching the ground. If an opponent is airborne or waterborne, the elemental earth dragon takes a –4 penalty on attack and damage rolls. (These modifiers are not included in the stat block.)
An elemental earth dragon can hold itself so still it appears to be a statue. An observer must succeed on a DC 20 Perception check to notice that the elemental earth dragon is really alive.
An elemental earth dragon can meld its body with any stone surface large enough to accommodate its entire body. This is a standard action and has an unlimited duration (the dragon can stay melded as long as it desires). It otherwise resembles the meld into stone spell (caster level 20th).
