Multiattack. The malfera makes one claw attack. If the attack hits, it makes a second claw attack against the same target.

Claws. Melee Weapon Attack: +7 to hit, reach 5 ft.,
Hit: 10 (1d12 + 4) bludgeoning damage. If two claw attacks are successful against the same target during the same round, the target is grappled (escape DC 15), and the malfera uses its Ensnare on it.

Bite. Melee Weapon Attack: +7 to hit, reach 5 ft.,
Hit: 8 (1d8 + 4) piercing damage. The target must make a DC 16 Constitution saving throw, taking 17 (5d6) poison damage on a failed save, or half as much damage on a successful one. The target is also poisoned.

Ensnare. The malfera draws a grappled creature in to its acid-coated, tentacled, chest and entraps it. The entrapped target is retrained and it must succeed on a DC 15 Constitution saving throw at the start of each of the malfera's turns or take 14 (4d6) acid damage. If the malfera moves, the entrapped target moves with it. The malfera can have only one creature entrapped at a time.

Bite. If the malfera's first claw attack during its turn is unsuccessful, the malfera makes one bite attack.
