The Tan Skull Snake is basically the weaker version of the Red Skull Snake found in Forest 1. However, this enemy has double the amount of LP than the Red Skull Snakes. This enemy can also be considered an upgraded version of the Blue Fairy Snake. It poses a good threat to ranged characters (who are not effective against this enemy), as the melee characters (who are effective against this enemy) are usually disabled in this stage to avoid accidental poisoning from the Green Cap Mushrooms. Baiting this enemy towards the melees is a good way to get rid of it. Ice weapons will easily work against it, as well.
