Summary0011838: Sea serpents are called dragons, but aren't immune to dragonfire
DescriptionThe dragon is the only creature that can attack with dragonfire, and it is immune to it via the tag `[FIREIMMUME_SUPER]`. However, cave dragons _also_ have this tag, presumably because they're also considered dragons. Following this, one would assume that sea serpents are also immune to dragonfire, seeing as their raws describe them as…

> A giant limbless dragon that lives in the sea.

…; however, they do not have this tag.
Steps To ReproduceFind the raws for the sea serpent and notice that they lack the `[FIREIMMUNE_SUPER]` tag.
TagsNo tags attached.

It is perhaps fully intentional, but id only be adding speculation onto it. However cave dragons are similarly fireproof ([FIREIMMUNE_SUPER]) but have a unnessecary mechanical application of being fire immune but not being able to breathe fire themselves.

At a later date in development, Toady has expressed they want to properly exhibit sub-species as being related, but at the current ver. this is only vanilla loreful.
