Sandtraps sit quietly in the desert or in subterranean passages, awaiting their prey. They usually don't attack unless their prey fall for their ambush, unless of course they are particularly hungry. Their corrosive slime allows them to eat through stone, creating the sand needed to hide within.

Engulf: Using sand-coated flaps, a sandtrap can suck a large or smaller creature in its body as a standard action. This does not provoke an attack of opportunity. If it wins a grapple check,, it gains hold of the victim, and can attack with a +4 on the attack roll.

Corrosive Slime: Per round, sandtraps deliver 2d6 acid damage, 4d6 vs. metallic creatures or objects, 8d10 vs. stone. Metallic armor and weapons become useless in their maws.

Sine they eat through stone, they are found in soily subterranean dwellings, rather than in stony passages.
