    Default Rhac bites?

    I've heard that gargoyles can give you some fairly nasty bites when they want to, and i've heard that leachies can be worse.
    I'm just curious how bad these little guys can be.
    So, does anybody have any stories or pictures they can share?

    I have never been more than puffed at by my leachies when I have startled them, my first gargoyle bit me the first time I handled her and never again... most garg babies bite me once or twice but no real pain so far. Actually my worst bite thus far has been from one of my crested males mistaking me for a female The leachies are a bit intimidating at night though I let them be and only handle them long after they have gone to sleep

    I've been bitten twice, by two separate gargoyles. Both times were after the animal was startled suddenly. One of them drew blood; it looked like a paper cut and felt about the same.

    I would have to ask someone if I could post a picture of a bite they received from a Yate, Ill post it if they give me permission.

    I heard Trachys are the worst
    It is truly an upside-down world we live in where lies are truths, criminals are our nationsí leaders, and Satanís minions are considered men of God.

    My trachy is still reasonably small and doesn't hurt when it bites, but I guess I'm lucky in that it's not quick to bite in the first place so I hopefully won't have to worry as much as it matures. My gargoyle has left a few nasty bites, but it's nothing too bad, I've been bitten by much worse.
