At minimum you would need to know whether it stains or not and if it has a distinctive odor. Given the grey brown color of the scales, I would guess this is in the Xanthodermati group which typically stain yellow and then turn brown and have an unpleasant “phenolic” odor (as opposed to a sweet almondy or anise-like odor). The Xanthodermati are generally mildly toxic and can cause nausea and vomiting.
