      Hi Musicalsquidy. That’s an interesting name! Snake pipefish aren’t at all dangerous, they don’t even have any teeth! The fees by opening their snout very quickly which forces the water to rush into their mouths, a bit like vacuum that drags their little prey inside. Apart from that, they don’t move fast, have no teeth or spines and are not venomous nor poisonous.
