The hideous creature approaching from the shadows looks to be pieced together from parts of other monsters as some sort of vile joke or blight on Nature.

Sound Imitation (Ex)

Mongrelmen can imitate sounds made by any creature they have previously encountered, including monsters with special vocal attacks. They cannot, however, mimic the special vocal attack powers or damage dealt by such attacks. A successful DC 14 Will save made by a listener detects the falsehood. The save DC is Constitution-based and includes a +2 racial bonus.
