Just curious if chameleon bites hurt? My veiled doesn't mind me handling him but seems to have a great deal of disdain for my wife's hands being in his enclosure. He puffs up and hisses and lunges at her with his mouth open trying to bite her I assume. I'm sure someone here has been bitten...just curious if it hurts or causes any type of injury to your hand or body parts. It doesn't appear that chams have too much bite force, but I want to reassure my wife that shes not in peril!!!
