I never tried or attemp to try it, man. If you think they're wild when trying to fight through a net when trying to catch them, imagine them trying to struggle for water.
I would think it would be hella slippery and plus more chances of getting bitten... not to mention stressing 'em out

I had an 8" Natt bite through a net but got caught at the dorsal fin, so I had to pull her out backwards, she wasnt very slippery I didnt think, she is the most tame piranha I have owned though, she wouldnt do anything when I used to pet her by rubbing her sides when tank cleaning, but I would never try that with my current collection

I also grabbed the Ternetzi I just sold in a bucket, she was laying on her side from stress so I stood her back up and she didnt do anything

I should note its rather stupid to touch a live piranha that is over 5" because they can do serious damage, even babies can do damage to you

They have a wierd slimey/soft feel to them. Ive touched P's in the tank and out. Care must be taken to ensure proper finger retention though.

Here's your answer: i have two hands and ten fingers!:laugh:

Seriously: i've touched them in the tank at their sides and tail only when i think they calm...only 3 or 4 times in many years!

I've touched their entire boby when they are dead, including fins, jaws, teeth...less dangerous don't you think!

i wouldn't do it. i'm not scared of getting bit, i just don't want to hurt my p. i was watching a fishing show and they showed the proper way to release a fish. they say try to not hold it with your hands because of their slime. if you hold it with your hands, the oils on your fingers will transfer to their slime and can mess it up. it can even cause them to get sick.
i don't know what else they said. but it was something like this. someone else can probably give a better explanation.
