@Jonathan Correct. All secondary natural weapons are taken at -5 (no matter how many there are). You can figure out which is which from reading the stat entry, the primary weapon is usually the one used in the "attack" line. Also note that "two claws" is valid, in that case, both are the primary weapon and do not take a penalty.

@Jonathan Only the things listed as changing are changed. Base attack isn't listed, so you keep yours. Natural Weapons (like the Leopard's claws) don't use base attack to determine how many attacks you get, so you get exactly the number shown in the Leopard entry. You use your own feats So you'd use your base attack + leopard STR.

@Jonathan You get the Lion's AC, yes. You get its natural armor, it's dex, and any size bonus/penalty. You do get reach if it has it. Your max HP does not change at all, despite the CON change (don't roll its HP, use your own). Your current HP might go up, as using Wild Shape says it heals you as if you rested.

comment Can you make a Spring Attack with a single standard action that includes both the attack and the movement?
@Epiphanis Yep. :) Unfortunately that's how 3.5 goes sometimes, there is text that can in good faith be read to mean different things. I've never seen them issue any other clarification on this feat. Nature of the beast, unfortunately.

Are you open to point buy systems as an alternative? That will be much easier to control and get the outcome you're looking for.

You have to move 5' before and after the spring attack to get the benefit of spring attack. That's what the feat says. You can do that if you're using a move action, since you have movement before and after the feat applies. Without that, you have no way of doing that initial movement, because you have no benefit of the feat yet (including any movement you contend the feat gives). You can't use a benefit of the feat to meet the feat's conditions for getting the benefit of the feat. The "after" part is also a condition, but you do that after the attack by definition.

By your interpretation, you're using movement that is a benefit of Spring Attack. Spring Attack itself says that you don't get any benefits of Spring Attack unless you move before and after. If you don't have any benefits, where is this movement you have to use to qualify for Spring Attack coming from?

Your link is about Scouts and doesn't seem relevant to what you were saying.
