Piranha's mouth. Close-up of the mouth of a redeye piranha (Serrasalmus rhombeus). The large, sharp teeth of this fish clearly indicate that it is a predator. The redeye piranha lives in shoals in the rivers of northern South America. It feeds on anything it can find, including other fish, mammals, crabs, lizards and beetles. Despite its voracious reputation, it is not an aggressive fish, although its powerful teeth can deliver a damaging bite. An adult can reach a length of over 40 centimetres.
