the deep blue sea has its own list of dangers that don’t involve drowning we countdown the top 10 list of most deadly fish in the world and dare you not to cringe at number 8

Number 10

piranhas, these tiny predators have a bad reputation but piranhas mostly feed on plant matter or scavenge off already dead animals they are however capable of effectively stripping meat from bones with their 4-millimetre-long razor-sharp teeth and they are endowed with a keen ability to detect blood so if you’re sporting even a minor injury while in the Amazon it’s best to stay out of the water.

Number 9

tigerfish these voracious creatures can grow up to 6 feet in length and live in most African freshwaters tiger fish possessed dagger-like teeth that jut out when their mouths are closed they’re not particularly dangerous to humans except when agitated  as they often are when reeled in on a fishing line tiger fish bites can be as painful as a wasp sting and they have an ability to release tiny hairs that cost severe irritation to human skin

Number 8

Candiru these tiny parasitic fish are often found in the gill folds of other fish in the Amazon River feeding on blood and growing up to an inch long rumour has it that these fish are likely to swim into genital orifices and lodge thereby extending spines into the flesh while there has only been one documented case in recent history it’s probably best if you don’t change this one by going commando swimming in the Amazon basin

Number 7

electric eel growing up to nine feet long the electric eel process is the ability to admit a 600-volt shock into the water around it these shocks stun other fish so that the eel finds it easier to swallow them whole or that they may reveal themselves if camouflage however such a high voltage could cause heart failure in humans and potentially cause death
