Dark scaled Lizardfolk (5e Homebrew Race)


Primal and strong, blackscale lizardfolk are at the top of the food chain being intelligent predators. Preferring to inhabit the bogs and the deadly jungles in tropical climates or icy wastes of the arctic regions, these dark-scaled lizardfolk are well adapted to their semi aquatic or frozen wastes lifestyles. They are notorious for fiercely guarding their territories, and swiftly waging war on anyone or anything that dare tamper with their hunting grounds.

Primal Stance. Your walking speed becomes 35 feet while you are on all fours. You may shift from prone to all fours as a bonus action. Dropping to all fours consumes no actions and standing from all fours consumes only 10 feet of movement. 
Natural Weapon - Bite. Your fanged maw is a natural weapon, which you can use to make unarmed strikes. If you hit with it, you deal piercing damage equal to 1d6 + your Strength modifier, instead of the bludgeoning damage normal for an unarmed strike. If you hit a creature with your bite attack on your turn, you can use a bonus action to attempt to grapple the target.

Scaly Hide. You are covered in thick scales. Your base armor class is equal to 13 + your Dexterity modifier. You can use your natural armor to determine your AC if the armor you wear would leave you with a lower AC. A shield's benefits apply as normal while you use your natural armor.

Natural Athlete. You have proficiency in the Athletics skill.
