Engulf (Ex)

A slithering tracker can engulf a paralyzed foe up to one size larger than itself as a standard action. It cannot make a slam attack during a round in which it engulfs. The slithering tracker merely has to move into a space occupied by a paralyzed creature, completely covering it.

An engulfed opponent is subjected to the slithering tracker's paralysis and plasma drain, and is considered to be grappled and trapped within its body.

A slithering tracker only uses this ability against a paralyzed, sleeping, or otherwise helpless opponent.

Plasma Drain (Ex)

A slithering tracker drains the body fluids from an engulfed opponent. Each 5 minutes an opponent is engulfed, it takes 1 point of Constitution damage. Because it takes a long time to completely drain a foe, a slithering tracker generally only uses this ability against a paralyzed, stunned, held, or sleeping opponent.

Sealed Mind (Ex)

Even though a slithering tracker has an Intelligence score, it is immune to all mind-affecting effects (charms, compulsions, phantasms, patterns, and morale effects) just as other oozes are.

Transparent (Ex)

A slithering tracker is hard to identify, even under ideal conditions, and it takes a DC 15 Perception check to notice one. Creatures who fail to notice a slithering tracker and walk into it are automatically hit with a slam attack and subjected to the creature's paralysis attack.
