From the Super Mario Wiki
Calorites are fiery monsters found inside the Flab Zone of Bowser's body in Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story. They will use the two logs in their hands to increase the power of their flames, and then the Calorite will begin rolling while shooting flames at Mario and Luigi. This attack can be avoided if the heroes simply jump over the flames. If they are hit by this attack, they might get a burn and lose a few turns, unable to dodge or counterattack. Calorites are also able to eat Tenderlings and turn them into additional Calorites.
