Crafted from foam latex, this item features a highly detailed, scale painted exterior; with a gradating blue, green and yellow color scheme, as well as red accents around the gills and fins. This item also features a pair of acrylic green and black eyes and an open mouth filled with pointed silicone teeth with a sharp wire present in each tooth. The rear of the fish, which stops halfway through the body, features an armhole leading to an interior glove at the piranha’s head; this allowed a puppeteer to control the biting movements on screen. Additionally, there is a plunger connected to plastic tubing which runs to a small hole at the top of the mouth used for pumping fake blood through the piece.
This piranha measures approximately 10” x 13” (25cm x 33cm) and features some light wear due to production use but remains in good condition.
This item comes with a Prop Store Certificate of Authenticity.
