When we think of origami fishes, the elegant and beautiful origami Koi carps come to mind, but this origami Piranha is a different kettle of fish! This paper Piranha has very sharp teeth, a big smile (or is that a grin?) and it looks like it's about to eat you!
This Piranha origami fish is similar to my Torpedo Shark origami model, with a shorter body and a wider tail.
To make the origami Piranha, you need a square piece of paper with a different color on each side. Origami paper like "kami" with a colored side and a white side is perfect. In the video I use a 15x15 cm sheet of paper. (about 6 inches).
When you are done folding your origami Piranha, I recommend folding a couple of those easy and cute origami tropical fishes so that your Piranha has a company at least until dinner time! :-)
