Special Abilities

Leap (Ex) A sawleg locust can take 10 on Acrobatics checks to jump even if distracted or in danger.

Voracious (Ex) A sawleg locust’s bite attack deals double damage to creatures with the plant subtype and to objects made of paper, wood, or other plant materials.

A sawleg locust is a larger variety of grasshopper that grows as large as 2 feet in length and feeds on a variety of plants. Periods of drought sometimes cause these locusts to gather in large groups, either to migrate to better feeding grounds or rarely to overpower and consume small animals.
