On the beaches of São Paulo, you have to be extremely careful and take all the safety precautions, which depend on the prohibited signs on the beach. The main danger to the recreation seekers are the piranhas. The at first glance quiet small fish are incredibly dangerous.

Sao Paulo Beaches, Brazil 2002 was one of the first tragic seasons in Sao Paulo. Alone on the beach Conceicao there were 38 cases of piranha attacks. The number of accidents on the Sao Paulos beaches is increasing every year. In December 2009, 74 people of Piranhas were injured. Fortunately, there was still a lethal exit to this day, which would be connected with the piranhas attacks in São Paulo. However, the bites of the dangerous predators often lead to the amputation of the body members, which is a single way to save the life of man.

The carnivorous piranhas living in the coastal waters are quite large. Usually, the length of the piranha body is at least 30 cm. The most dangerous periods are always the special prohibition signs on the beach. But many tourists do not pay attention to these prohibitions. The serene and beautiful beaches of São Paulo are incredibly dangerous. One should always keep in mind that the piranhas are very fast fish.
