Knowledge (Nature)

DC Result
19 This enormous predator is a tyrannosaurus, an ancient reptilian beast of the group known as dinosaurs.

This result reveals all animal traits.

24 This deadly creature has simple combat tactics brought on by the fact that very little can resist its attacks. Most will just charge in a bite whatever presents itself as a possible meal - i.e. anything that moves. With powerful digestive juices and strong constricting muscles within its gizzard, tyrannosaurs typically swallow prey as soon as they get a good hold and can easily gulp down creatures of typical humanoid size.
