Swimming with the piranhas anyone?

Found this on wikihow....How to swim safely with piranhas.

1. Know where piranhas live. Piranhas are freshwater fish and live only in South America (although occasionally a stray pet piranha turns up in a river elsewhere). They reside almost exclusively in still or slow-moving streams or lakes, and they do not tolerate cold water.

2. Avoid desperate piranhas. As previously mentioned, piranhas are usually mild-mannered and skittish. They rarely, if ever, attack a much larger animal unless they are starving. Food supplies are at their lowest during the dry season, when water levels fall dramatically, so avoid entering piranha-infested waters during these times. When water levels are high and food plentiful, piranhas pose almost no danger to humans. If in doubt, ask the locals.

3. Avoid making a fuss. Recent studies suggest that desperate piranhas are attracted more by activity than by the scent of blood. Thus, when crossing a river, try to minimize your movement and swim or walk with smooth, fluid motions. Avoid talking, and don't use flashlights or lanterns when crossing at night. However, Caymans (South American alligators) are more active and hunt at night. Therefore traversing open water at night, especially at night without lights could be more risky due to the potential for attacks by caimans.

4. Create a diversion. As a last-ditch effort, you can try to create a diversion by releasing an animal carcass or a substantial quantity of raw meat downstream from your desired crossing point. Keep in mind, however, that the piranhas can indeed strip the animal to the bones in a matter of minutes or even seconds, so you'll want to cross very quickly before the fish catch wind of you.
How the hell would you know a desperate piranhas from a non-desperate one? And how would you walk through the rivers while minimising your movement. Actually they should create point number 5. Just avoid a river infested with piranhas, you morons!

I remember watching National Geographic where there's this group of animals crossing a river with piranhas in it. They don't get eaten but got neutered instead. Apparently the piranhas can only get the dangly bits that is more manageable. So guys, beware hor! hehe.

For more know-hows, maybe you can try these topics as well:
