Andrea- Black Piranha: Descriptive Writing

The Black Piranha
WALT: write a descriptive paragraph.

My father (Carlos Fitarez) has many interests in different animals, mammals, etc. It started when he was a little boy. He read a lot of books about animals which motivated him to find other facts about these species. During one of his, so called, journeys, a friend of his was telling my father about a different kind of fish he’d never heard of before. Carlos did his research before he left for adventure.
Carlos was floating through one of South America’s rivers as he was told that this is where the black piranhas were located. He grabbed out his fishing rod and put his bait on the hook and waited for a black piranha to eat the bait.
        Finally he caught one. As soon as it was in his hands, he grabbed his camera and described nearly everything about the black piranha;

The Black Piranha is a very distinctive species. They have burning red eyes with a stocky body. They’re very dark in colour and have a superb set of gnashes. Almost bulldog like in appearance. It isn’t a long type of fish. It is maneuverable which means it move incredibly quickly. It does not hunt in packs as traditionally believed, they actually hunt on their own.  Because they’re fast and have one of the sharpest teeth on earth, it makes it easy for them to hunt. Piranhas have tatty tails and fins because their cannibalistic. They are not afraid to eat their own kind. They would take big chunks out of the piranha, leaving the fish alive.

As soon as he finished recording it, he let the piranha go and then uploaded the video to youtube and got over 500k views in a week.

    I really like your writing about the Black Piranha it is very interesting.
    It was kinda hard to do this because I didn't really know what to write in it.
    How long did it take you to write this?

  2. Kia Ora Andrea,
    I like how in the introduction, you gave me a lot of information on the main protagonist, your father. I also like those words you used to describe the Black Piranha. When I read the ending, I was amazed because he got half a million views in a week. If I had a youtube account, I would be surprised by that. What do you like about the Black Piranha?
