Combat

Firesnake bites don't do much damage directly, but they sometimes light the target on fire.

Burn (Ex): Those bitten by a firesnake must succeed at a DC so Reflex save or catch fire. The flame burns for 1d4 rounds, as described in the Catching on Fire section of the DUNGEON MASTER'S Guide (page 303).

Skills: Firesnakes have a +4 racial bonus on Listen and Spot checks and a +8 racial bonus on Balance and Climb checks. They use their Dexterity modifier for Climb checks.

Fire Subtype

A creature with the fire subtype has immunity to fire. It has vulnerability to cold, which means it takes half again as much (+50%) damage as normal from cold, regardless of whether a saving throw is allowed, or if the save is a success or failure.
