The Mimic automatically gets to try to hang on to any melee weapon that hits it. Is there any other creature (or, better yet, a template) that gets a similar reactive grapple style ability? I am designing a low level puzzle type encounter, and dropping a couple Mimics in would be too lethal. It looks like the save to avoid having a weapon stick is Con based so I could probably dial back the CR a bit with a reverse progression, but just using a new creature would likely work better.
tl;dr: I am looking for a monster besides the Mimic that gets to grab a weapon, start a grapple, or otherwise slow down anyone attacking it in melee.
