The Piranha is found in the river.
The Piranha can be donated to the museum. Upon doing so, the following text is given by Blathers:
"They have terrifyingly sharp teeth, which contributes to their ferocious reputation. Oddly enough, they are actually quite timid, though they are still very dangerous fish. If they can't find food, they will resort to cannibalism or tear apart any animal they can grab hold of. Take care when catching them so they don't end up biting your hand with their sharp teeth!"
Upon catching the fish, the player will say the following:
"I caught a piranha! Or did it catch ME?!"
