What is the capital of Tunisia?

French equivalent of the Czech expression “Dráždit hada bosou nohou” that is close to “fools rush in where angels fear to tread”?

I’d say “s’aventurer en terrain dangereux” (literally : to venture into a risky place)
The potential danger is seen by the locutor, but not always by the one who is doing the action

The action can be a risky conversation, a business operation, … but i won’t use it for something like jumping over a cliff. The expression is used for insidious risks, often social risks.

Besides “Jouer avec le feu” which was mentionned in many comments, I would propose:

C’est comme jouer à la roulette russe

this clearly conveys a great risk (while “jouer avec le feu” is more neutral)

I can’t think of another very idiomatic expression like this, but from there your creativity is the only limit, like in any other language…
