Pirashark (Little Sister)
Transcript of Pirashark (Little Sister)
By: Leeann Laville
Diet: Meat eater
Habitat: Fast flowing rivers and Amazon basin
Habitat: Shallow, salt or fresh waters
It is 65 million years into the future and I have learned that there has been a mass extinction that has wiped out most of the animals I was familiar with.
There were many new species that I discovered but one in particular caught my attention, I classified it as a Pirashark. Based on my observation, this animal resembled a bull shark and a piranha.
They are vicious & resilient animals. Also I observed what the Piarashark had in common with the bull shark and the piranha was that they phylum was the same which is chordate.
Hybrid Chordata between the Parana
& The Bullshark
Behavior : Aggressive and territorial
Skin Type: like sand paper
Primariy Location: Amazon river.
Compatibility: fresh water.
Water Temperature: 71-81 degrees.
Water type: Murky (making it easier to attack its prey.)
As the Atlantic ocean was polluted
and the water temperature was above
normal, this caused the Bullshark to
migrate to the Amazon river.
Fact: The mouth of the amazon river is the
Hunting Type: Solitary hunters (occasionally hunt in pairs.)
Favorite food: Turtles, humans, fish, birds, dolphins, even there own kind.
Hunting Technique: “bump and bite technique’’ that’s when they circle and bump the victim before biting. Once they start biting they can skin an animal to the bone in a matter of seconds.
The technique where the Pirashark skins its prey comes from the piranha.
Note: Pirinas can "smell" blood as far away as 1-2 miles
The bull shark would let out the sperm and the piranha would let out 10 off springs which would then be placed in a nest under the river. The piranhas are very protective of the eggs so they were always guarding them. The eggs would then hatch within four months, once hatched they are at danger of being eaten by bull sharks so half of them would get eaten while the other half would manage to survive.
Since they are both vicious animals they often fought and killed off a few of each other & as they faced reality that they just could not get rid of one another that’s when reproduction took place.but it took about 2,000 years for the bull shark and the piranha to evolve through selective breeding
