A behir usually bites and grabs its prey first, then either swallows or constricts the opponent. If beset by a large number of foes, it uses its breath weapon.

Breath Weapon (Su): Line of lightning 5 feet wide, 5 feet high, and 20 feet long, once a minute; damage 7d6, Reflex half DC 19.

Improved Grab (Ex): To use this ability, the behir must hit with its bite attack. If it gets a hold, it can attempt to swallow or constrict the opponent.

Swallow Whole (Ex): A behir can try to swallow a grabbed Medium-size or smaller opponent by making a successful grapple check. A behir that swallows an opponent can use its Cleave feat to bite and grab another opponent.

The swallowed creature takes 2d8+8 points of crushing damage and 8 points of acid damage per round from the behir's gizzard. A swallowed creature can cut its way out by using a light slashing or piercing weapon to deal 25 points of damage to the gizzard (AC 20). Once the creature exits, muscular action closes the hole; another swallowed opponent must again cut its own way out.

The behir's gizzard can hold two Medium-size, eight Small, or thirty-two Tiny or smaller opponents.

Constrict (Ex): When a behir grabs a foe with its bite, it can coil its body around the foe. A behir deals 2d8+8 damage with a successful grapple check against Gargantuan or smaller creatures.
