A celestial lion’s natural weapons are treated as magic weapons for the purpose of overcoming damage reduction.
Improved Grab (Ex): To use this ability, a celestial lion must hit with its bite attack. It can then attempt to start a grapple as a free action without provoking an attack of opportunity. If it wins the grapple check, it establishes a hold and can rake.
Pounce (Ex): If a celestial lion charges, it can make a full attack, including two rake attacks.
Rake (Ex): Attack bonus +7 melee, damage 1d4+2.
Skills: Celestial lions have a +4 racial bonus on Balance, Hide, and Move Silently checks. *In areas of tall grass or heavy undergrowth, the Hide bonus improves to +8.
Smite Evil (Su): Once per day a celestial lion can make a normal melee attack to deal extra damage equal to its HD (5) (maximum of +20) against an evil foe.
