I bought some shrimp as a treat for my gsp. not sure if he ate them or just torn them to shreds. went to remove the body parts last night and whilst I was fishin them out the little bugger bit my arm lol. is this a puffer thing or have I just got a little sod who I'm gonna have to be extra vigilant with?

buggered if I'm puttin me arms in when he gets to 6 inches lol, il have a very long handled net, do they have just one large tooth or is it more beak?

I think its just one that is more in a form of a 'beak' unless it's a few small teeth all fused together to form a sharp 'point' which they use to break open areas where food is, break a snail shell or any other shells off the food they want to eat.
I've had mine bite a chop stick I used in his tank to remove some shells... and when he gave it nip I could feel and hear the tooth hit and scrape on the chop stick! Petty strong tooth they have!

Four teeth, 2 on top, 2 on bottom, and isis is right, they fuse together to form a beak

My boyfriend's been lucky so far, his little puffer hasn't bitten him yet - but not for lack of trying!

One of mine will nip at my fingertip if I just barely put it in so he thinks it's food. But when my hand's in the tank they both go hide in 'the garage' lol

I had to lure him away from the front of the tank with frozen bloodworm while I quickly scooped the remains of the poor shrimp out

It's ok...I've got a bird that thinks he's human.
Woody bit my dad the other day... I was getting something from the back room and I heard this yelp from over by the fish tank! I guess Woody got confused and hungry and thought my dad migh taste good >.<
