Red-bellied Piranha

Latin Name:  Pygocentrus nattereri

General Size:  9 x 5”

The red-bellied piranha is well known for its purported ability to rapidly strip the flesh off large animals while in schools.
As can be seen here the teeth are relatively large and very sharp and are well equipped for flesh removal however they primarily feed on insects, worms and other fish. This species can be found in the Family Characida which includes 776 species and is primarily South American. Piranha typically won’t exceed 19 inches and 8.5 pounds.
