Innate Spellcasting (Psionics). The psychosaur’s spellcasting ability is Intelligence (spell saving throw DC 13). It can innately cast the following spells, requiring no material components:
Pounce. If the psychosaur moves at least 20 feet straight toward a creature and then hits it with a claw attack on the same turn, that target must succeed on a DC 14 Strength saving throw or be knocked prone. If the target is prone, the psychosaur can make one bite attack against it as a bonus action.

Bite. Melee Weapon Attack: +6 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 8 (1d8 + 4) piercing damage or 12 (1d8 + 4 plus 1d6) piercing damage with hunter's mark, and 5 (2d4) psychic damage.

Bred from deinonychus, alphas are the leaders of psychoraptor packs. In addition to being stronger and smarter than their raptor subordinates, alphas can disorient large numbers of prey with bursts of synaptic static.
