Charm touch (Su)

Twice per day, on a successful hit with a frond, a kelp devil can affect the opponent as by charm monster (caster level 12th). The creature can make a DC 18 save DC to resist the effects. The save DC is Constitution-based.

Underwater Concealment (Ex)

The main body of a kelp devil remains submerged even when attacking. This grants it concealment (20% miss chance) against all attacks.
