One of the carnivorous members of the family Characidae, the red piranha is not a large fish but swims in such large shoals that, together, the fishes form a formidable hunting group. They are armed with strong jaws and razor-sharp triangular teeth, which can chop pieces of flesh from a victim with alarming efficiency. Despite their very blood-thirsty reputation, carnivorous piranhas feed largely on fish and on seeds and fruit but will attack larger, usually wounded animals, which they quickly devour by their combined efforts.
