Climb Stone (Ex)

A copper dragon can climb on stone surfaces as though using the spider climb spell.

Slow Breath (Su)

Instead of a line of acid, a copper dragon can breathe a cone of slowing gas. Those in the cone must make a Fortitude save or be slowed (as per the spell slow) for 1d6 rounds plus 1 round per age category of the dragon.

Uncanny Dodge (Ex)

A young or older copper dragon is always looking out for an ambush. He can never be caught flat-footed. This ability functions like the rogue ability of the same name.
