Special Abilities

Adhesive Padding (Ex) Geckodillos pads have excellent adhesive properties on flat surfaces, allowing them to support their weight while hanging from vertical surfaces, or even cling to hull of a starting spaceship.

Grab And Pull (Ex) When a geckodillo makes a successful attack with it tongue against a Small or smaller creature, it grabs the target and pulls it 5 feet closer to itself. For every 5 points the attack roll exceeds the target's KAC, it can pull the target additional 5 feet closer to itself.

Hibernate (Ex) A geckodillo can suspend its life functions for days or weeks if need be, even going so far, as surviving space travel while adhering to an outer hull of a small starship.

Oxygen Reserve (Ex) A geckodillo can refrain from breathing for up to one hour while remaining active. It usually enters hibernation after half an hour without oxygen.

Geckodillos resemble large, armored reptilians with multiple limbs and multiple eyes. Their bony plating can withstand kinetic weapons and their adhesive pads let them climb over most surfaces, including occasionally attaching themselves to a small ship. A number of geckodillos managed to somehow survive trip from their homeworld to other planets, spreading as oversized pests across the galaxy.
