Red-bellied Piranha's in Amazon River Forest
Ten red-bellied piranhas have been added to our Amazon River Forest exhibit!
Red-bellied piranhas can be found throughout the Amazon River basin. They are omnivorous scavengers, feeding mostly on a mix of insects, worms, crustaceans and smaller fish.
Although they've gained a ferocious reputation over the years, piranhas do not pose any attack risks to humans.
Be sure to check back every Friday to find out what’s happening!
