Despite being as tall as a halfling, a mature piranha could devour a halfling in minutes. The piranha’s appetite surpasses even a goblin in sheer ability in how much food it can eat for its body size. With its ability to smell blood from 300 feet away, more arrive shortly after a piranha gets it first bite.
