Serrasalmus rhombeus import fully grown Black Piranhas from Peru
From time to time we import fully grown Black Piranhas from Peru
. Serrasalmus rhombeus (formerly also known as S. niger) is the biggest of all species of piranha. In contrast to the well-known Red Piranha (Pygocentrus nattereri) the Black ones are solitary fish.
The specimen we obtained now shows clearly how hard the life in the wild can be. Right behind the head a big piece of flesh is missing. The awful wound has healed very well. However, we cannot say whether this veteran was wounded while fighting with a conspecific or if it happened during an attack of another predator.
For our customers: the animal has code 292810 on our stock list. Please note that we exclusively supply the wholesale trade.
