This footage was shot in Brazil. You can see the locals throwing dirty slabs of meat in between those fragile looking boats. The result? Chaos!
With each throw the feeding piranhas get more and more violent. You can see entire fish leaving the water as they flip back and forth in a frenzy while latched on to the meat.
The dangers of piranhas are often over stated but they are dangerous. Anyone can see that getting on to these fishing boats would be a high risk gambit while the shoal was in.
