Ed's Notes: On the Grab/Hold special attack the book said this was usable on a successful claw attack. I simply feel that this is in error, so for several reason here, I'm house-ruling that this should say "
pincer," as listed above. Also, it seems like they should be worth more that 12,000 XP, at least based on Tanar'ri with similar HD. I'll have to come back and re-calculate that sometime. (I'd estimate that around 15,000-16,000 though would be more accurate.)
