This spell causes an animal to age and grow at a magically rapid rate.

AD&D 2e[]

Accelerate Animal Growth[]

Spell Level: 5

Rarity: Very Rare (Common for Chronomancers)

Schools: Chronomancy
Components: V, S, M (a bit of the target, or the target must be touched)
Range: 10 ft./level Casting Time: 2 rounds
Duration: Instantaneous Saving Throw: Negates
Target: 1 animal

Ages a creature of animal intelligence (1) by up to one month per caster level (decided before the spell is cast). After being affected by the spell, the creature must make a System Shock roll at 85% +1%/Hit Die (maximum 95%) or die within 1d4 rounds. If they survive, aging takes 1 turn per month, during which time the animal's actions are halved (its attack bonus is halved, its number of attacks is halved, its speed is halved, etc.).

Reversed[]

Knowing this spell allows you to also cast its reverse, reverse animal growth (and vice-versa).
