Constrict: A giant squid deals 1d6+8 points of damage with a successful grapple check.
Improved Grab: To use this ability, a giant squid must hit a creature of any size with a tentacle 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 constrict.
Ink Cloud: A squid can emit a cloud of jet black ink 20 feet high by 20 feet wide by 20 feet long once per minute as a free action. The cloud provides total concealment and all vision within the cloud is obscured.
Jet: A squid can jet backward once per round as a full-round action, at a speed of 320 feet. It must move in a straight line, but does not provoke attacks of opportunity while jetting.
