    Question 1 passed: 42.4 %
    There's no doubt that piranha have the most * reputation in the Amazon, but I hadn't actually seen for myself one of their famous feeding frenzies.

    Question 2 passed: 57.9 %
    So I wasn't sure they deserved to be on the Deadly 60. We all headed back to the boat for the night and fished off the side for our dinner. Then, we spotted * in the water.

    Question 3 passed: 60.4 %
    It was something infinitely more scary than a * . 'Oh, my goodness. Look at that! Oh, that is grotesque!'

    Question 4 passed: 53 %
    The strange * shapes were a kind of catfish called giant candiru. Normal candiru are about the size of my little finger, so these ones are relative monsters. -'Oh, look at that! It's got right into the belly cavity.

    Question 5 passed: 30 %
    That is one single bite. It just looks like he's bored a hole straight into the * of that fish. That is horrible. That is absolutely horrid.' -'You're going swimming now?' -'Eh, no. No. Or possibly never again.'

    Question 6 passed: 40.2 %
    This calls for a Deadly 60 experiment. -'Okay, I'm gonna time how long it takes them to * this piece of steak.' Just imagine if you fell into the water. How long would it take before the candiru started attacking you? -'They are possibly the most grotesque, the most frightening fish I think I've ever seen.'

    Question 7 passed: 32.4 %
    And no * had I put this bit of meat into the water, than all of a sudden it's … -'Ouch! Ha-ha! Suddenly surrounded by seething, white grotesque catfish.

    Question 8 passed: 43.2 %
    Look at… They're shredding it! They are absolutely shredding it! They just get a grip with those teeth and then spin their body round and round and round and bore into it, like some * living drill bit.'

    Question 9 passed: 26 %
    Dudu reckons that they'll actually do this to a living animal swimming these waters at night. That is * . -'Argh! Can I take piranhas off the Deadly 60 and put candiru on instead?' -'Yeah.'

    Question 10 passed: 39 %
    I wasn't planning on it, but I have to say that's one of the * fish I've ever seen. Oh ho-ho! Look at that. From steak to nothing … in 48 seconds.

    Question 11 passed: 50.5 %
    I'm certainly not going swimming in there. They are * . One of the most gruesome animals on the list! They drill a hole through their prey and can strip fish

    Question 12 passed: 55.2 %
    or meat right down to the * in a matter of minutes. They're absolutely horrifying. They're the giant candiru.
