Hmm, and I expect most of you thought they only inhabited rivers, eh? Well you’re wrong!

MANILA, Philippines
A routine check of a shipment at Manila airport turned bloody when a piranha sprung up and bit one of the inspectors.

“I was checking one of the boxes when suddenly, something leaped out of it and bit me,” fisheries quarantine inspector Mario Trio told the Philippine Daily Inquirer in a report published Tuesday.

The bite left a V-shaped wound on the inspector’s finger, and the 34 piranhas in the consignment he was checking _ falsely declared as “ornamental fish” from Peru _ were confiscated over the weekend, but died two days later, the newspaper reported.

The Filipino consignee faces charges of illegally importing live piranhas, punishable by up to eight years in prison and a fine, quarantine chief Felipe Santamaria said.
