From the Wikipedia site (Thanks, Mark)
In the wild, the animals are only active from April to mid-November, spending about an hour per day above the ground.
A semi-arboreal species, it is found climbing deciduous trees in search of prey when encountered above ground.
Almost all documented bites (eight in the past 100 years) have resulted from prodding captive animals with a finger or bare foot.
