Thesaurus Rexs are rare versions of t-rexs. These variants are able to use truenamer magic and fight in melee as well. They are well studied creatures who have studied the odd branch of truename magic.
Improved Grab (Ex): To use this ability, a Thesaurus Rex must hit an opponent of up to one size smaller 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 try to swallow the foe the following round.
Swallow Whole (Ex): A Thesaurus Rex can try to swallow a grabbed opponent of up to two sizes smaller by making a successful grapple check. The swallowed creature takes 2d8+8 points of bludgeoning damage and 8 points of acid damage per round from the Thesaurus Rex’s gizzard. A swallowed creature can cut its way out by using a light slashing or piercing weapon to deal 25 points of damage to the gizzard (AC 12). Once the creature exits, muscular action closes the hole; another swallowed opponent must cut its own way out.
A Huge Thesaurus Rex’s gizzard can hold 2 Medium, 8 Small, 32 Tiny, or 128 Diminutive or smaller opponents.
Thesaurus Rex's can speak utterances faster and extend the time they last. Thesaurus Rexs use utterances as a level 10 truenamer
The Save against the utterances is 10 + 5 + 2.
