I would not touch mine! I saw it snap a serpent stars's leg off for poking around in the wrong cave. I don't think it would cause too much harm but I just don't like things biting me Anyone else want to try it out??? jk

I don't think I'd try either but I don't think they'd bite you. Mine gets very mad if I"m poking around his hole and snaps to give me a warning :P

I've been listening to mine for 6 months and have yet to see him. I can hear whenever he doesn't like me poking around, but he's mostly timid...not aggressive at all.
