In Reply to: leachie or auric? which is more interactive? posted by STARMOM on December 30, 2002 at 16:15:47:

For me, no comparison...the Auriculatus have extremely long teeth (fanglike)...the leachies have a sharp set and very strong bite...but when an Auric nips you (usually accidentally) you can experience the same type of pain as with a long metal sliver and the minor bleeding continued (for me) longer than expected (making me wonder if their saliva contained "unknown properties"...I've never been bitten by an Auric except by accident and only a couple of leachie's have ever grabbed on intentionally. Usually both species are docile and easily handled.
