The touched creature’s skin appears to be made of scales, similar to those of a dragon. Dragon scales grants a +3 enhancement bonus to the creature’s existing natural armor bonus. This enhancement bonus increases by 1 for every three caster levels above 7th, to a maximum of +7 at 19th level. This spell also grants resistance 5 to one of four energy types selected: acid, cold, electricity, or fire as well as DR 5/magic.

The enhancement bonus provided by dragon scales stacks with the target’s natural armor bonus, but not with other enhancement bonuses to natural armor. A creature without natural armor has an effective natural armor bonus of +0. The damage reduction and energy resistance does not stack with other sources.
