‘Piranha’ in the museum


This is a video of a red bellied pacu in an aquarium.

In the natural history museum, apart from its normal exhibits, there are several big and small exhibitions.

Right now, there is a small exhibition about the red pacu, Colossoma bidens, recently found in a local city canal.

Apart from that fruit-eating fish, killed by a grey heron, the exhibit shows a more notorious relative of the pacu: a ‘real’ carnivorous rhombeus piranha, Serrasalmus rhombeus from Suriname.
