A dire bat has a wingspan of 15 feet and weighs about 200 pounds.
Dire bats swoop down upon unsuspecting prey from above.
Smite Good (Su): Once per day the creature can make a normal melee attack to deal extra damage equal to its HD total (maximum of +20) against a good foe.
Blindsense (Ex): A dire bat uses echolocation to pinpoint creatures within 40 feet. Opponents still have total concealment against the bat unless it can actually see them.
Skills: Dire bats have a +4 racial bonus on Spot and Listen checks. These bonuses are lost if its Blindsense is negated.
