Freeze (Ex): A gargoyle can hold itself so still it appears to be a statue. An observer must succeed at a Spot check (DC 20) to notice the gargoyle is really alive.

Skills: Gargoyles receive a +8 racial bonus to Hide checks when concealed against a background of worked stone.

Gargoyles either remain still, then suddenly attack, or dive onto their prey.
