Keen Sense. This creature has advantage on Wisdom (Perception) checks that rely on smell.

Amphibious. This creature can breathe air and water.

Tangle Shell. When this creature is missed with a melee weapon attack, the attacker must succeed on a DC 16 Strength saving throw, or the weapon becomes stuck. If the weapon's wielder can't or won't let go of the weapon, the wielder is grappled while the weapon is stuck (and the weapon can't be used). A creature can pull the weapon free by taking an action to make a DC 16 Strength check and succeeding.
