"You can make a swift bite attack against a flanked foe.
Prerequisites: Base attack bonus +9, bite attack.
Benefit: Whenever you are flanking with an ally who also has this feat, as a swift action you can make a bite attack against the opponent you and your ally are flanking."
I cannot find anything that would prevent combining this Swift Action bite attack with a full attack. The full attack is a Full Round Action, and the CRB specifically states that you an combine Full Round Actions with Swift Actions. I don't see anything under the rules for Full Attack in the CRB that would prevent it.
Is there a FAQ or other rule that I am missing that would prevent it? Of course, if the PC were attacking with regular weapons, it would make sense that the bite would take a -5 to hit for combining manufactured and natural weapon attacks.
I feel it's not a terrible addition. If you have decent static bonuses, it's like having one main attack and three iteratives at -5 (full attack of swing, swing at -5, bite at -5, then swift action bite at -5).
Edit: Also, is there anything that would prevent it from being used in conjunction with a charge?
Not quite. You get one attack per natural attack per series of attacks. This is because natural attacks do not function off of BAB iterative attacks.
But you can be granted additional series of attacks in a turn, each let's you use the same natural attack in the same round. Take the styracosaurus.
You're splitting hairs that don't even exist. Nothing says you only get one natural attack from a natural weapon either per round or per turn. You simply do not get iteratives with a natural attack. That is the limitation in the rules.
