Note to self: Don’t go swimming in Brazil.

Joao Antonio Cruz Junior recently uploaded a video to YouTube of him feeding some piranhas in a river.

It looks pretty calm until he tosses in a hunk of meat, and then all hell breaks loose.

Watch as these water demons tear their food to shreds, and then never go anywhere near this place ever because they will ruthlessly kill you and gnaw on your bones.

The Salmon Cannon: Catapulting Fish and People's Dreams Into The Future

Humans have interrupted a lot of natural processes. Highways divide forests, and dams interrupt the migration routes for fish. But that isn't to say that we haven't found solutions to some of the problems that we created. Wildlife bridges have been built over highways allow animals to cross the highway safely. And in a recent Twitter storm, the public has rediscovered an amazing apparatus that scientists released in 2014 which helps salmon migrate. It is called the Salmon Cannon. And as you can imagine, everyone is obsessed with it.

No Photoshop here! Japanese artist Iori Tomita began creating these translucent taxidermized animals for the purpose of studying as an undergraduate in Fishery/Hatchery management before the project took on a life of its own. By dissolving natural proteins in the fish Tomita is able to create this psychedelic look. Check for more pictures in the Via link!

A copper rockfish at the Vancouver Aquarium developed cataracts in his eye and had to have it removed. The sad little one-eyed guy then retreated to the bottom of the tank and was constantly picked on by his tankmates.

To help save him from the abuse, head veterinarian Dr. Martin Haulena recently performed surgery to give him a prosthetic replacement.

"Without an eye, the other fishes would act aggressively towards it for appearing sick and weak," the aquarium wrote on its blog.

They put the fish under anesthesia before the procedure, seen above.

After the surgery he seemed to fit right back in with the others.

"Ever since we put in the prosthetic the fish is right back in the mid-water column, interacting with other fish," Haulena told Global News. "He's more robust. Everybody, including the fish, seem a lot happier now."
