Could piranhas kill a human?



  1. 0 Votes

    Human-eating piranhas is a myth that began with President Teddy Roosevelt’s trip to Brazil. Local fisherman, hoping to create an exciting spectacle for the president, sectioned off an area of the Amazon and dumped in tons of starving piranhas. They subsequently fed the piranhas with a cow carcass, which the piranhas promptly and viciously reduced to mere bones.

    Yes, they could. But, that doesn’t mean they will. For the most part, piranhas ignore humans, going for fish or wounded animals. Only in very rare cases do humans get killed by piranhas – more people eat piranhas than the other way around.
