SPECIAL TRAITS

  • Hold Breath. The black caiman can hold its breath for 30 minutes.

ACTIONS

  • Multiattack. The black caiman makes two attacks: one with its bite and one with its tail slap.
  • Bite. Melee Weapon Attack: +7 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 9 (1d8 + 5) piercing damage. If the target is a creature, it is grappled (escape DC 15). Until this grapple ends, the target is restrained, and the black caiman can’t use its tentacles on another target.
  • Tail Slap. Melee Weapon Attack: +7 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 12 (2d6 + 5) bludgeoning damage. If the target is a creature, it must succeed on a DC 14 Strength saving throw or be forced prone.
  • Death Dive. When grappling a foe of its size or smaller, a black caiman can perform a deadly dive as its action. As it clings to its foe, it uses the force of its powerful tail to propel it downward in the water, allowing it to inflict bite damage and drag the target up to the black caiman’s swimming speed. The creature is still grappled by the black caiman.
