The wound from an ether scarab's bite attack bleeds for an additional point of damage per round thereafter. Multiple wounds from such attacks result in cumulative bleeding loss. The bleeding can be stopped only by a successful Heal check (DC 10), or the application of a healing spell.
Planar Rip (Su)
By ripping at the planar fabric with it's mandibles, an ether scarab can create a 2 way portal
between it's home plane and another (usually the Ethereal). This hole can accommodate any Large or smaller creature, traveling in either direction, and lasts for 1d4+1 rounds.
Death Burst (Ex)
An ether scarab that dies on the Material Plane explodes harmlessly, causing a planar rip (see above) between the Material Plane and the Ethereal Plane.
