The White Piranha (Serrasalmus rhombeus) grows much larger than the Red-bellied Piranha. Although bigger in size and possessing similar dentition, this species specializes on hunting other fish and does not "swarm" in large schools, so it is less dangerous than the Red-bellied Piranha. Hence, it is necessary to use fish as a bait as they tend to refuse meat bait.
