Anyone here experts or knowledgeable of Piranhas? People constantly say how Piranhas don't come after humans yet I've found this incredibly disturbing Youtube video of a little boy in Peru who lost the vast majority of his skin, flesh, muscles and organs to piranhas. This video has now completely traumatized me for life.
(**WARNING, this video link is absolutely NOT for the faint of heart. This may sound silly of me to say since I've already pasted a link here but my suggestion would be to NEVER watch this video if you don't want to throw up and feel traumatized for life**)

No piranhas have gotten their reputation unfairly. It's because of teddy roosevelt. When he was on the Amazon river they wanted to wow him so they took a bunch of piranhas and starved them almost to the point of death then they dropped a cow in with them and they attacked it furiously because they were starving and so that's what Teddy assumed was how they normally attacked prey.0
