Lol I wondered this as well. Once I put my finger in Teeney's tank (don't ask why lol) and she bit me xD It didn't hurt but it did scare me!

Not a day goes by when one of my bettas doesn't bite me. I encourage it by sticking a pellet on my finger to lure them in. They are always happy to oblige That's neat about the teeth - I had no idea!

The way these lil guys eat, with such a viracious appetite, and when they take food from your fingers, I was saying that --they are like lil pirahnas..you can feel something in there when they clamp onto your finger..oh yea..that's teeth!!

Faith had some gorgeous bettas. Extremely high quality in the early 2000s. Too bad I couldn't get my hands on a pair.

Bettas have teeth, since they are carnivorous. I believe I read somewhere that, in relevance to body size, bettas have a more powerful bite than a great white shark. Good thing we don't have giant bettas swimming in our lakes lol.

YIKES !!!! Good thing they have tiny mouths

...I never knew they had teeth...I learn everyday on this site I swear.
I've wondered but I've honestly never been bitten by a betta yet to find out the hard way myself.
But now I know.
And knowing is half the battle.
