Carter has stared at my hand. I have too keep it very still.

I've heard some spas using fish to eat the dead skin off your feet ._.

Have any of you guys seen the splunking dudes... you know, the ones who stick their foot or hand in a hole and have a catfish take a bite before they pull the fish out and catch them? I would be freaked out if I were on one of those trips... seems fun but I'd rather pass and laugh at some other poor unsuspecting soul.

That method is illegal in the USA.

And CB, I had no idea they were illegal here. Just as they should be anyway

I dont think fish pedicures are illegal in all of the United States, but it seems like it's highly cautioned and on it's way to being illegal, just for the fact it isn't sanitary. (Which I agree with you on, Kithy).

My uncle has a stuffed 4 foot long one he caught in his office. It has some NASTY teeth lol.

My friend refuses to swim in the lake at my cabin because I made the mistake of telling her there were Northerns living under our dock :P

More Northern pics just to show you how big and mean-looking they are:




I forget where it is, but there's a natural hot spring where people with psoriasis can go and the fish nibble off their dead skin and lesions. It apparently can greatly improve the condition. This is an actual medical spa though, not the kind where they just dump a bunch of fish in your pedicure water.

O_O big. fish. That would scare me to swim with those, too, lol. I would not want to be bit by one.

And from what I know about bacteria, and temperature, etc., that hot spring sounds like it would be more.... sanitary at the very least, than already used pedicure water. :P

AH Northerns the reason why I have come to fear getting bit by fish. Never got bit by one, but those buggers have huge teeth and I seen few of them while swimming.

I'll stick to my betta biting my finger anyday.
