Newt with bizarre defence mechanism= D&D monster ideas? ;)
BBC - Earth News - Bizarre newt uses ribs as weapons
this little chap, when threatened, manages to get it's ribs to poke through it's sides!
it also secrets a poison across it's skin
so, if you swallow or bite it, it's spiked ribs will effectively inject poison.
amazing what Nature has come up with, eh?
for 4th ed you could imagine that on a larger beastie, being like a close burst 1, Str vs AC, weapon + poison?

It should be a once per encounter power, though, when bloodied, for instance.
I really don't get the sort of logic behind training in a specific place every level... What, the sorcerer can't manifest new powers randomly except in the designated zip codes?

yeah it is fun ain't it?
well I think it could have some odd effects, like oh, say Slow the beastie, or reduce it's AC while in effect (due to it's ribs sticking out like that etc etc)
