How large are yours?
Yikes, well, I guess that answers that...they bite!
We have 2 which I avoid here, though I usually handle beetles. One is a 'turtle bug' which is a pretty large beetle that hangs out in water. The other is a longish, pretty large beetle that we call a weasel bug. They bite also.
How cool that they are there, though. I named a fluffy gray cat JuneBug once. He was super sweet.
