they very rarely bite, mine did by accident the other day, it didnt so much hurt as sting like a bad paper cut. The shock is the worst part as i say was an accident you'd be very very unlucky if ours ever got you I wouldn't worry about it.

Well, mine is still young, but when he bites(nasty little bugger), it isn't that strong, sorta just alittle pinch as said above.

Agreed, Even though i have the grumpiest male ever! he hates me. And has done in the year and half i've had him! But he's never actually bitten me.
My female is more interested in food near her than attacking me

It's not what I would call painful but my 6 month old BD managed to break the skin when she bit me.
