Male Genetalia –Eating Fish ‘Pacu’ Caught in Europe

In the 3D piranha movie it was featured sometimes how it devoured ferociously the naked victims and even naturally targets their special parts. But believe it or not, in Europe a type of fish called “Pacu” known nickname ‘ball cutter’ for its attacks on the male genitalia was retrieved by a fisherman in the Oresund Sound between Denmark and Sweden last week.

Pacu a 8 inch (21cm) is a known relative of the piranha that is most commonly found in the Amazon region. The freshwater fish, is said can grow larger that a Piranha with up to 35 in (90cm) (weigh up to 55 lb) and has a human-like teeth. 

Found in most rivers in the Amazon and Orinoco basins in South America, they have also been spotted in Papua New Guinea, where it is believed they have been introduced to boost fish stocks.

Back in 2011, British angler Jeremy Wade caught a 40lb specimen in Papua New Guinea

‘The pacu is not normally dangerous to people but it has quite a serious bite, there have been incidents in other countries, such as Papua New Guinea where some men have had their testicles bitten off,’ Henrik Carl, a fish expert at the Danish museum, said.

‘They bite because they’re hungry, and testicles sit nicely in their mouth,’ he told English language news website The Local.

In areas where pacus proliferate, fishermen have reportedly bled to death after losing their testicles to the fish’s crushing jaws.
