The Digester, created from dinosaur stock by foul magicks, is a hunting and eating machine equipped with a powerful acid-spraying natural weapon where its head should have been. It stands about 5 feet tall and is 7 feet long from snout to tail and weighs about 350 pounds. When it is not hungry (which is rarely), it lies low and avoids most other creatures. When hunting, it looks about for a likely target, then charges forth and delivers a gout of acid. If the initial attack is insufficient to kill the prey, the digester attacks with its hind feet until it can spray acid again. As an ambush predator, the Digester has +2 to all surprise rolls.
A Digester may spray acid in a 20-foot cone, dealing 4d8 points of damage to everything in the area. Once a digester uses this ability, it may not use it again for 1d4 rounds. The creature may also produce a concentrated stream of acid that deals 8d8 points of damage to a single target within 5 feet. In either case, a save vs. Breath Weapons halves the damage.
