Cape Town - So, you thought piranhas were just scary little fish roaming the tributaries of the Amazon and best avoided?

Well, apparently they're a common food source in the tropical wetland region of Brazil, commonly known as Pantanal. But how would one go about catching these flesh eating critters without risking serious injury?

Watch this video to see how

A YouTube video shows an unidentified woman balancing precariously on a short jetty, dunking raw meat into the water. Every time she lifts it back out a couple of piranhas can be seen clinging on. She then shakes them off into a bucket.

Fascinating!
