Shapechanger. The werecrocodile can use its action to polymorph into a crocodile-humanoid hybrid or into a crocodile, or back into its true form, which is humanoid. Its statistics, other than its AC, are the same in each form. Any equipment it is wearing or carrying isn’t transformed. It reverts to its true form if it dies.

Hold Breath. The werecrocodile can hold its breath for 30 minutes.

Actions
Multiattack. In crocodile form, the werecrocodile makes a bite and a tail attack. In humanoid form, it makes to war pick attacks. In hybrid form, it makes two attacks, only one of which can be with its bite and only one of which can be with its tail.

    1. Made some adjustment (added swim speed to hybrid form, corrected damage, upped to hit bonus by +1). Enjoy.
