:problem. The bigger they are the more carefull I would be. Most of them
:I've had work hard just to subdoe a banded gecko.lol

Sorry if it sounded like I was berating you. I didn't mean to imply that you thought corals were rear-fangs, as I have posted pics of my boomslangs on the main venomous forum and such. It just made me think of that myth. But I'm glad to get some responces on it. Anyway, as to free-handling your corals, I would do that very sparingly if at all. Even with my boomers I wear a thick coat and heavy workman's leather gloves. Corals can definitely cause life-threatening envenomations. Just think of it this way, every time you fh that coral, you're handling the equivalent of a young cobra, except that these guys can't spread a hood to threaten you.
