- Will this work as well on the psionic power Claws of the Beast? It
does grant a natural attack. :)

attach a NATURALATTACK tag to the PC so no as is this would not work. You
could however make a template with this attack in it, once applied you could
then choose the feat and this attack would be one of the choices.
This will be slightly more work than I first though, currently the monsters
with this feat have an entry for damage which matches what is listed in the
text. Of coarse the text takes this feat into account so the damage will
need to be bumped down so that it will still match the text when this feat
is enabled. There's only 20 or so instances of this so it's not a huge deal
