I get the urge many time to put a bloody hand in the tank and let my fish bite me just to see what its like. Maybe I am just crazy though
. I doubt I will ever do it, but I am just curious as to what if feels like. I wouldnt ever try it with a shoal though thats asking for trouble. Maybe the Elongatus, I doubt it would take much coaxing with him

I have had them head butt me while cleaning and since then I have had this urge, yes my cariba could take fingers and thats why I wouldnt try with them, the elongatus could only take parts of a finger though

all of my friends were talking about how your hand goes numb when you get stung by a bullfish, so I thought "oh, that doesn't sound too bad" so I decided to try and take a bullfish off the line instead of cutting it. I got stung and it hurt like a mad bitch. It sucked and i regret it

seriously though you could experience nerve damage which would affect you for the rest of your life. You might not be able to write or draw as easily.

:rock: hey, good idea nate, the only problem is that the wound will take a long time to heal considering the shape of it. possibly get seriously infected. Another good idea, is to film the distruction of your hand, then send it into JACKASS.


To answer your question, I have thought about letting them bite me. but only when trying to impress girls


oh yeah, and a piranha bite is how i picked the name -traumatic-

Jackass, ......... thats the kind of stuff I do for kicks when I get bored, like riding trash cans down hills, shopping carts, jumping cars over hills and so forth, but the car jumping is behind me now that I have a nice truck

airhorns at golfcourses, cannot wait for that trees are blooming

I think you should avoid trying to let them bite the hand that feeds, not going to be good if the worst case scenario happens, plus you might just frighten them in the attempt of doing so
