Giant Water Strider

Edit Page Content

This bug has long, fuzzy legs that support it on the water's surface as if the Creature stands on solid ground.

A giant water strider is a long-legged insect with the ability to walk on water. It feeds on fish and birds. Water striders use their weak flight only to escape predators or for seasonal migrations to new breeding areas. They are sometimes kept as mounts by coast-dwelling humanoids. A giant water strider lives 1–2 years.

Carrying more than a light load (200 pounds) prevents a giant water strider from using its water skating ability.

Special Abilities

Tremorsense (Ex) A water strider's Tremorsense functions only when the Creature is in contact with the water's surface.

Water Skating (Ex) A water strider can move on the surface of water as if it were on land. A water strider swimming at the water's surface can pull itself onto the water with a successful Swim Check.
