How fast do piranhas eat?

A school of these 8- to 12-inch fish, which inhabit the freshwater rivers of South America, has been observed gnawing a 400-pound hog to the bone in minutes.

Initially attracted by the smell of blood, piranhas begin gnawing as soon as they reach their prey.

With their spring-trap jaws, they remove any animal’s flesh most efficiently.
