They are sort of like the above shown snapping turtle who came out of the mud to defend his territory. I wouldn't get my hand anywhere close. That bite would hurt.
I relocated that fellow to another place while knowing that slowly but surely he will return to his old habitat and ways.
After a short 'holiday' today and tomorrow, the thieves and liars of finance and government will regroup and try to regain their momentum.
Their teeth are sharp and if we are bitten, it will hurt.
