Sam Scalz Talks About Art, Aquarium Hobby, Nature and More!
Sam Garcia Jr. is also known as Sam Scalz in the art and aquarium industry.
Born in 1973, Sam began creating wildlife art at a very young age and has never stopped. His focus is primarily fish, reptiles, and amphibians, but he also paints birds and unique mammals as well as exotic flora.
Utilizing a combination of materials and mediums, much of Sam's work is very different from what is typically seen in the wildlife art scene. In some of his paintings on canvas and board, he captures his subjects with scientific accuracy and lifelike realism while still applying abstract qualities to the images by creating surreal backgrounds and borders. In many of his commissioned illustrations, the normally static application of drawing and painting techniques used by many other artists to depict animals and plants are discarded and a more dynamic approach is taken. Still, accuracy is not compromised as the work must properly represent the species for identification purposes.
Sam is also a great tropical fish keeper and a lot about them. Many years experience, has Sam, in the hobby with great success. Sam loves Nature and talking about Nature!

Piranahs - Monsters of Nature will be the topic on tonight's Natures Talk Show Monsters of Nature. A piranha or piraña is a member of family Characidae in order Characiformes, an omnivorous freshwater fish that inhabits South American rivers. In Venezuela, they are called caribes.From the moment tiny baby piranhas hatch from their microscopic eggs, they come into the world armed and dangerous. Baby piranha will feast on tiny crustaceans, fruits, seeds, and aquatic plants. Once they reach about 1.5 inches in length they begin feeding on the fins and flesh of other fish that wander too closely. As they grow larger they begin to venture out in groups (shoals) of about 20 fish where they use a variety of hunting strategies to kill and eat their prey. Heck, they don't kill their prey first, they just start eating the victim alive - that's what makes them so ferocious. Adult piranha have been known to eat their own babies.Piranhas are world-famous for their razor-sharp teeth. Native peoples of South America will catch the piranha and use their teeth to make tools and weapons. Even the fisherman who catch these vicious little predators have to be careful when the fish is out of water. A single piranha out of water is still dangerous enough to take off the flesh, or the odd toe, from an unwary fisherman.
