In battle, a purple worm forms into a coil 15 feet across, biting and stinging anything within reach.
Improved Grab (Ex): To use this ability, the purple worm must hit with its bite attack. If it gets a hold, it can attempt to swallow the foe.
Swallow Whole (Ex): A purple worm can try to swallow a grabbed opponent of Huge or smaller size by making a successful grapple check. Once inside, the opponent takes 2d8+12 points of crushing damage plus 8 points of acid damage per round from the worm'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 cut its own way out.
The worm's interior can hold one Huge, four Large, sixteen Medium-size, or sixty-four Small or smaller opponents.
Poison (Ex): Sting, Fortitude save (DC 24); initial damage 1d6 temporary Strength, secondary damage 2d6 temporary Strength.
Tremorsense (Ex): A purple worm can automatically sense the location of anything within 60 feet that is in contact with the ground.
