    I have heard that some some people get a localised reaction to the bites and that is why they hurt so much, do you two know if there is any truth to this?

    Ive only been nipped when it was pulling a cockroach from my fingers, didnt clamp down at all. Mine seen to be reasonably gentle in regards to hand/tong feeding, more crazy when they are chasing prey though.
