Host Matthew Donald and guest co-host Natasha Krech discuss Megapiranha, a really freakin' big piranha. Duh. From the Late Miocene, this 3-foot serrasalmid fish was basically a B-movie monster in real life, although it’s still not nearly as horrifying as that one fish from the same river that swims up your urethra. And that one’s not prehistoric either, but in the modern Amazon, threatening unwary pissers even as you listen to this very episode. Enjoy your nightmares, folks!
