Keen Scent (Ex): A camptosaurus can detect creature through scent up to 60 feet away.

Stampede (Ex): A frightened herd of camptosaurs flees as a group from a perceived danger, literally running over creatures in their path. Large or smaller creatures caught in a camptosaur stampede take 1d12 points of damage for every five camptosaurs in the herd (Reflex DC 14 halves). The save DC is Strength-based.

Camptosaurs always flee from combat, but they will lash out with their tails if cornered or knocked down.

*A camptosaurus's tail slap is treated as a secondary attack and adds only half the camptosaurus's Strength bonus to the damage roll.
