Thanks to KATV for this delectable image to start your week — a toothy piranha caught in Lake Bentonville.

Fear not, a state Game and Fish Commission spokesman says.

"We get a few pacus and piranhas caught from time to time. They get too big from someone's aquarium and they release them. They cannot survive our low winter water temperatures so no populations have ever been established,"  Keith Stephens said.

Noted: This fish was caught last week. We're not expecting winter water temperatures until, well, winter.
