They can hurt. It’s about equivalent to being pinched by a crab or clamped onto by a parakeet; the pressure hurts more than the occasional pinpricks.
They’ll let go as soon as they figure out that you’re too big to eat, though. My response was to lift the frog up for a few seconds, let him realize that biting me was resulting in him being lifted up into the air, and then putting back down where he could let go. As they get older, they’ll get more careful if you do that. They might still nail you occasionally, but they’ll notive their mistake quicker and let go before it hurts. In theory. Of course, having been clamped a few times, you’ll be getting more careful as well, just in case.

Defensive behavior (besides hopping away or squeaking) is rare in CB horned frogs. It’s just feeding accients that you’ve got to watch out for. You reach in to spot-clean the cage, the frog sees movement, and CHOMP!

I believe that only males bark and only when they are looking to breed... i could be wrong though... as for the bites... my guy bit me once... cause he was really hungry (or just being a pacman lol) and he caught my finger instead of the food... it startled me more than it hurt tho...

I would compare the bite to holding a bass. It all depends on how big the frog is, and how you tolerate pain. It can break the skin. If you ever do take a bite do not jerk your hand away, you could throw it into the glass and kill him. Leave your hand still and it will realize it can eat you, which would most likely be the only reason that it would bite you.
