It is considered to be a melee weapon attack plus four to hit, reach of five feet, it can only target one target and on a hit deals nine piercing damage, calculated by rolling 2d6 and adding 2. In terms of how to use these in my game you know, maybe in following a cave badgers tunnel. In any case you can also check out this hadrosaurus dnd 5e stats.

It leads you to a new cave system with plant life the likes of which you’ve never seen before and a for some strange reason glowing crystal emanating a vibrant light on the ceiling and i’d have these guys kind of be the welcoming party into a dino land.

There are relatively easy to defeat relatively easy to hit have a variety of movement options so they can make their way out from the shallow lagoon as it were and i think they’re kind of cool from a thematic angle.

This sail-backed reptile is commonly found in areas where dinosaurs live. It hunts on shores and in shallow water, filling a similar role as a crocodile. Do you know what is the largest creature in dnd 5e.
