More information...

Panthers prey on just about anything they want to. They will patiently stalk a potential meal, striking whenever the creature lets down its guard.

Panthers grow to be over 9 feet long and can weigh up to 4,000 pounds.


A panther attacks by running at prey, leaping, and clawing and biting as it rakes with its rear claws.

Hide in Plain Sight (Ex): Panthers can use the Hide skill even while being observed. As long as he is within 10 feet of some sort of shadow, a panther can hide itself from view in the open without having anything to actually hide behind.

Improved Grab (Ex): To use this ability, a panther must hit with its bite attack. It can then attempt to start a grapple as a free action without provoking an attack of opportunity. If it wins the grapple check, it establishes a hold and can rake.

Pounce (Ex): If a panther charges, it can make a full attack, including two rake attacks.

Rake (Ex): Attack bonus +10 melee, damage 2d4+4.

Skills: Panthers have a +4 racial bonus on Hide and Move Silently checks. *In areas of tall grass or heavy undergrowth as well as in forested or dark areas, the Hide bonus improves to +8.
