Statistics on what? If you mean by how many people piranhas in general have killed, theres no record of them doing so.

Or if you mean how many elephants have been involved in a piranha attack, there's no record of that happening.


Don't rely on books. Mine says that an elongatus is not dangerous to humans, it makes the same claim with brandtii. Of course they may not be in the wild, but I didn't buy the book to study fish in their natural habitat.

Franks site lists the history of piranha's and how they are believed to be closely related to Pacu's and then the earth shifted separating the two changing how they evolved over time. Visit Frank's site for more detail.

Yur best bet is check out OPEFE.. or PM Frank for more indepth answers.
I have a book, Piranhas Fact and Fiction; published 11 years ago. Way too old and info on species are off and classified in the wrong group.

statistics like numbers in the wild............. how long they have been around......
There are no actual numbers of piranhas in each river. Not even a guesstimate because they are prolific and considered a pest.
