Piranhas are found along the Amazon River, and are known for their razor-sharp teeth and ferocious group attacks when hungry, according to The Independent.

While piranha attacks are rare, they can be deadly.

The Telegraph reports that a 6-year-old girl died in January after piranhas ate the flesh from her legs when she fell into a river during a thunderstorm in Brazil. In 2012, a 5-year-old girl suffered the same fate in another attack.
