Piranhas are deadly carnivores found only in warm waters, such as seas, lakes, rivers, and streams.
A piranha swarm’s diet consists mainly of other fish, though mammals, birds, and amphibians caught in the water serve as a fine meal too.
Piranhas are small, 8 to 12-inch long black or silvery-black fish with large bulging eyes and a tiny mouth lined with razor-sharp teeth. They are generally black or silver with a red underbelly or mottled red spots on their scales. Eye color is usually gray or silver.
Piranhas are related to both quippers and giant caribes.
