The plant can take the form of a specific animal-based creature. The maximum forms it can assume are equal to one plus the power score modifier. The creature mimicked must be approximately the same mass as the plant. The plant does not gain any of the creature's mutations, but it will gain the creature’s movement rates, types of movement, as well as natural attacks and armor class. The plant can retain this form for as long as it desires. The alternate forms must be chosen upon creation or when the mutation is gained.
