The geohyrax is a large creature of earth and stone which superficially resembles a rodent. It has small pointed ears and a pair of teeth that stick out of the front of its upper jaw.

Geohyraxes are not particularly smart, and can only speak Grassmuncher languages.

Geohyrax's unarmed attacks deal 1d6+8 damage (Muscle included).

As a standard action, the geohyrax can leap 160 meters and create shearing where it lands: if it lands on the ground, it chooses a four-edged section of earth centered on the landing point, each edge being 40 to 160 meters long, and makes that section of earth plunge into the ground a distance of 10 meters. The grinding of earth against earth is audible from 300 meters away.

As a standard action, the geohyrax can make a fissure in the ground, splitting the ground in a line starting from the geohyrax, 2 meters wide by 10 meters deep, and 300 meters long. Creatures of size 2 meters or less touching the split region fall in unless saved by a grab ledge or other effect. The creation of the fissure is audible from 300 meters away.
