Looks like the beginnings of aboleths. o-o;

3. Pangolins (+dire version, of course)
4. Dire Stomatopods (the normal sized ones are too little, really, but still creepy)
5. Honey Badger
6. Bighorn Sheep (I was very disappointed in the ram in Bestiary 2.)

Cheliax

Oh god i have a few...

how about...

Dragon spawned creatures
cranium rats
New templates that are not simple templates that basically do the same thing but for different alignments like maybe deathless so FINALLY I can play a Necromancer that isnt evil...
or maybe an elemental template

just some ideas!!!

thats messed up

+1 to pangolins!

Leopard seal (any seals, really)

Less needed:

Vultures, skuas, puffins

Ibex, elands, gaurs

Mongeese, civets, raccoons

Bobcat

Aadwolf

Leopard rework (personal gripe)


7. Cymothoa exigua would be nasty for spellcasters...

Walrus!


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Campaign Setting Subscriber

A candiru based on the (horrible, gut-wrenching) myth rather than boring "facts."

A swarm of bullet ants.


Last time I was flipping through the Bestiaries, I couldn't find giant owls. WTF!


the "real" bulette

elands

I have a character that rides an eland instead of a horse. Its name is Baby.

I tend to populate my homebrew worlds with creatures from Earth's past, but I purposely avoid dinosaurs because I feel they're cliched and overused. It's not uncommon to see herds of brontotheres, three-toed horses (Halflings breed them for mounts), terror birds, or deinotheres as one travels the wilds of my settings. Indricotheres (giant rhinoceros-like creatures) are used as mobile archery platforms by some countries. I'd love to see more "real" creatures from the past statted up.

As far as living or "modern" creatures go, giant bola spiders would be terrifying, as would giant trapdoor spiders. I know back in 1e they statted these up in a Dragon mag, but I'd like to see them redone. Giant forms of parasitic wasps and flies that paralyze and then lay eggs into creatures (re PCs lol). Chimpanzees can tear a human being apart with almost no effort. And the sting of the Japanese Giant Wasp can dissolve flesh.

And don't forget cryptids like Bigfoot, the Ropen, and a host of other "undiscovered" creatures!

I have a player whose character rides a caribou. His name is . . . <Can't remember.>


MY DMNPC orc barbarian has an immature mastodon named Wooly!


Struthioniformes - Ostriches, Emus, Moas, etc

Hornets. Like this one: Asian Giant Hornet. "For real" insects are generally not things you want to mess with.

The entire fauna of Australia. Dire Wombat? Dire Kangaroo? Flee for your lives!

They are normal Owls but with the Advanced Template but since you can't use templates anywhere but monster creation, no one cares.

Speaking of insects let's add the bullet ant to the list.

@Freehold DM Yes that is the only valid response to the Honey Badger.

I haven't seen the video, but due to my National Geographic education I knew that honey badgers were crazy blood ragers. Odd to think that they tolerate honeyguides.

I think one of them shoots acid/poison. It was on some Discovery show.

What, honey badgers and no 'honey badger don't give a ...' (bad language) video? Best dub ever.


Geoducks :D

Familiars section of the Bestiary?


!!!

Well, it's too late now (the PC's opted to use the frozen river entrance into the dormant volcano, and skipped the owl encounter), but thanks!

Is this the same game that they cheated in?

Carefully-mapped caverns.


Well, cheating might be a little strong. Made useless my hours of preparation, more like it.

I forgot to mention how cool that was.

Honey Badgers are good at two things: Hating you and hating you to death.

Where you grip the honey badger by the tail. Whoever has longer arms and manages to hold on long enough wins. Then they take the winner to the hospital in a helicopter.


Snakes.

Why can I not find snakes?
