[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Los LLanos is the largest repository of wildlife in Venezuela, it is an immense plain savannah south of the Andes. When I was there it was the middle of dry season so the best time to view wildlife as water holes shrinks and the animals converge in one place to get close to a water source, piranha fishing is one of the things you can do, it was fun! we caught lots and that was also our dinner, fried piranhas, yum!!
In this photo our guide is showing us those sharp teeth they are known for.
More photos to come..

Interesting shot Gil!
I have heard of Piranhas, but this is the first I've seen. Those teeth look nasty and deadly. I take it, nobody went swimming?
Thanks for sharing,
