Plort Starting value: 40

Usual Habitat: Volcanic terrain

Lava Slime
(looks similar to a Boom Slime, but the "red" coloring is a dark brown/rocky texture along with lava veins. It has a fiery coat unless recently doused.)

Joke/Pun: Need s'more warm and fuzzy slimes in your life?*

Diet: Chickens

Favorite: Elder Hens and Elder Roostros

Slimeology: Lava slimes are a hot coal not unlike the Boom Slime. However, they are more docile and do not explode. They are carnivorous, but their meat-based diet is chickens only. They lack predatory skills, and prefer the older and less feisty chickens. Their fiery skin gives them some defense against nearly any threats, and makes them quite unstable near flammable objects.

A Lava slime that is exposed to water loses its protective veil of flame, and will take about a day for it to rekindle itself. During that time, it gets hungry much faster, but it can refire itself immediately when it eats some tasty chicken.

Risks:
Lava Slimes, given their docility, are less likely to intentionally harm Ranchers; however, their fiery bodies make them difficult (if not impossible) to safely vac in without becoming engulfed in flames. They can also light other species of slimes on fire on contact, causing them to degrade and eventually perish. Lava slimes can also cause plants and crops to spontaneously combust with their mere presence. Always have some emergency water nearby to avoid burning your ranch down.

Their plorts are also engulfed in flames after being recently produced. Fortunately, they quickly extinguish themselves when vac'd. Largoes are possible, yet the veil of flame makes the plorts unfit for any slime to consume.

Plortonomics: Lava plorts are used as a renewable and more efficient alternative to coal on Earth. They are easy to extinguish and reignite, and are also great for starting campfires.

I'm nitpicking here but at diet shouldn't it just say meat since the only meat is chickens?

It looks far too similar to the Boom Slime in my opinion, technically a Boom Slime is a lava slime itself but it explodes x:

Lava Slimes have a "coat" of fire around them. It's extinguished when exposed to water, and ignited when eating something.
