Can a Piranha Bite Through Steel? - River Monsters

Biologist and extreme angler, Jeremy Wade, will try to test how sharp is the piranha teeth are, after catching the piranha in the Amazon river using a tough plastic lure.

First, he tried a 300 pound breaking strain Kevlar fabric the same material used to make bulletproof vests, its teeth slides effortlessly through the Kevlar cutting it in two.

Now for the ultimate test, Jeremy tried woven steel, same result, just like the Kevlar.  It's a sobering reminder of the flesh slicing potential of these prolific predators on those rare occasions when piranhas do attack humans, its death by a thousand cuts.
