Red-Bellied Piranha



It’s a Piranha!

Did you know?
The Red-Bellied Piranha is often thought of as aggressive and ferocious, because of their sharp teeth and feeding frenzies (when a large group of Piranhas join together to strip a large item of prey within minutes). However, this behavior is not common, and is usually a result of starvation or provocation.

You can find Red-Bellied Piranhas in the Texas State Aquarium’s Amazon exhibit!
