    well, yes, I remember getting one hell of a startle the first time one of these swam into me so hard that I almost fell over

    Always take lots of spare undies to the Vaal for just this reason.

    Raggies are pretty docile and will leave you alone unless you bother them. Only recorded death attributable to a raggie was a bloke off Nahoon reef a good few years back AFAIK.
