Piranhas in Falmouth

Students at Falmouth Marine School are hoping to breed piranhas, one of the most fearsome fish in existence.

They've spent the past year looking after a shoal of piranhas in a tank at the school which has been adapted to mimic their natural surroundings in the Amazon.

They had to be moved from another tank where they were held in quarantine.
