This video proves just how terrifying piranhas can be

After coming across as stream in Brazil, these travellers didn’t hesitate to throw scraps of meat in for the piranhas, and the result is spectacular.

Brazil has a rich culture, sublime countrysides, colourful cities, luxurious forests and unlimited things to discover. This country is a destination that multiple people dream of visiting. But it is also full of little monsters that we really wouldn’t love to come across, even from far away. We’ll let you judge for yourselves.

Ravenous pets

If you’re thinking of going to Brazil soon, this video might make you think twice before you go bathing in just any stream. In this impressive footage, we can see tourists throwing large pieces of meat into the piranha infested stream. And just like their reputation dictates, these animals react to the slightest drop of blood.

An immediate reaction

The scraps of meat had barely touched the water when these fish with sharp teeth attacked it. They even looked sort of possessed! It really doesn’t make us want to dip our toe in there.

We can also remember a piranha attack in Argentina that led to 70 victims which is proof that you shouldn’t joke around when it comes to these very dangerous animals. Don’t forget that if Brazil is where you’re next going on holiday.

And here we thought Australia was the country where we'd least like to take a stroll out in nature.
