Isopod, Giant

Curl (Ex)

As a standard action, a giant isopod can curl into a ball, increasing its natural armor bonus by +2 but preventing it from taking any move actions. Uncurling also requires a standard action.

A Giant Isopod can become a familiar.  If so, its Master gains a +1 natural armor bonus to AC.
