Biggest Piranha – Amazon River Monsters

Most people think there is only one type of Piranha, but actually there are over twenty different types living in the rivers of South America. The most famous is the small red bellied Piranha – but the biggest and baddest Piranha in the Amazon is the lesser known Black Piranha. The Black Piranha, sometimes called Redeye Piranha live in very diverse habitats ranging from soft blackwater to hard whitewater areas of the Amazon. They are the biggest of Amazon Piranhas and have been caught weighing up to 9.5 pounds.
