The Amazon: Explore the Exotic Wildlife
Take a trek through the Amazon jungle to see some of the most exotic creatures in the world, including the brown-throated sloth, piranha, howler monkey, toucan and jaguar.Filed under:
Contrary to popular belief, most piranhas eat fallen fruit. No, it’s not as thrilling as stripping the meat off the bone. Rest easy -- no confirmed fatalities have occurred from a mass attack. Some tour companies offer fishing expeditions, providing tourists with the opportunity to fish for piranhas with just a stick, a hook and a piece of meat.
