    Do you feed him your enemies? Congratulations! You've taken your first step towards being the next Bond villain.

  11. You can actually buy them without a license?:eek: What kinds of precautions do you have to take before cleaning the fish tank, feeding them etc? Could it really devour your whole arm in a few seconds?

    That thing is smilling for the camera.. :)

    I'm glad you found a good pet.. i'll stick to cats and dogs
  13. Grow one big, then eat it!! Apparently, they're pretty good eatin'. Something about an all-meat diet...:D

    Rock on
  14. Piranhas are actually quite shy. When cleaning your tank, simply take a second or two to scare them off to the corners and you can do what you need to do safely. They become extremely unpredictable(dangerous) durin a feeding frenzy or when they assume your finger being a food source. Feeding them is not that dramatic or resembles any scene from a bond movie;) Some raw meat with excess blood, gold fish, prawns(shrimps), actual fact, they'll eat anything; including my plastic plants.

    Luckily for me, i don't need any license to own in Indonesia; and it's really cheap too....about US 35 cents each for a baby. Really COOL!!:D

    Wow!! I've always wondered what it would be like to have piranhas!! Ever since I was like 5 or 6, I've wanted one! What liscences are required in the US? Just out of curiosity.
  16. Creepy! But people would prolly say that about some of my pets lol.
  17. I was in a piranha owners forum and from what they were saying, some US state prohibits owning any species of piranha. But lots of people buy em anyway from other states and bring it back home. You might want to check with your local pet stores.
  18. You should dare your mates to try to pat it.. :p

    My gf has a pet python... i still think poshy names are cool for evil pets. like "chester the snake" or "william the piranha"
