The moment this woman dangled a string of raw meat above this body of water, we had no idea what to expect. What proceeds to happen took us all by surprise!


We here at SFG are familiar with piranhas, but we had never seen their ferocious jaws in action like this. It was truly a sight to behold. This got us thinking about piranhas in general, and what else we don't know about them.

For instance, according to Wikipedia, piranhas are "...a member of the family, Characidae in order Characiformes, an omnivorous freshwater fish that inhabits South American rivers. In Venezuela, they are called caribes. They are known for their sharp teeth, powerful jaws, and voracious appetite for meat." No kidding. After seeing this, I will never try my luck against a school of piranhas. And neither should you!

We here at SFG love interesting nature footage like this, but how did you feel about it? Please share your thoughts and feelings with us in the comment section.
