Fish on Friday

The Payara, or "Vampire Fish" (Hydrolycus armatus) is from the Amazon and has a set of two-inch daggers thast jut up from its bottom jaw.  The Payara can reach a length of about 3 feet, but is usually smaller. A related species looks very much the same, but rarely reaches more than about a foot in length.
