These two teeth are so long that there are holes in the upper jaw for them to fit into. This fish is a voracious carnivore that is fast and aggressive. It will usually grab its prey whole, trapping the fish in its mouth, then adeptly manuveur it about to be swallowed head first. If it prey is to big however, it may first chop it into smaller, bite-sized chunks. Like all the Saber Tooth fish, the Sabertooth Characin gets large. So to keep one as a pet. be prepared for a high feeder fish bill!</p>
