    You change the subject into a Small or
    smaller animal of no more than 1 HD (such
    as a dog, lizard, monkey, or toad). The
    subject takes on all the statistics and spec-
    ial abilities of an average member of the
    new form in place of its own except as
    o The target retains its own alignment
    (and personality, within the limits of the
    new form’s ability scores).
    o If the target has the shapechanger
    subtype, it retains that subtype.
    o The target retains its own hit points.
    o The target is treated has having its nor-
    mal Hit Dice for purpose of adjudicating
    effects based on HD, such as the sleep
    spell, though it uses the new form’s base
    attack bonus, base save bonuses, and all
    other statistics derived from Hit Dice.
    o The target also retains the ability to
    understand (but not to speak) the langu-
    ages it understood in its original form. It
    can write in the languages it understands,
    but only the form is capable of writing
    in some manner (such as drawing in the
    dirt with a paw).
