Not really. It DOES have a pretty nasty bite

And as for the Silver Teeth, this creature can't defend itself against people who are truly on the Astral plane. Well, it can, but it loses a ton of efectiveness. Kind of like fighting a fire elemental in the middle of the ocean.
How can it not defend itself? Its got the mentioned bite, which btw lets its grapple very effectively, it can flee very quickly, and appear out of nowhere from its hidey hole.
