Testicle Eating Fish Showing Up in Lakes Across U.S.

ABC News

This’ll have guys swimming for the shore faster than Jaws ever would. A man in Washington state is the most recent to net a Pacu, a cousin of the piranha, a fish with the reputation of biting men’s testicles — it’s even been reported two men in New Guinea died after such an attack from blood loss.

It is supposed that the fish in question, was dumped in the lake after it grew to big for it’s owner. It now measures a whopping 17 inches in length, according to the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife.

According to the Huffington Post:

They have molar-shaped teeth and strong jaws that let them crack open tree nuts — they will also eat small fish or meat lures. And this is not limited to the Seattle area. There are also news reports of Pacu caught in Arizona, Colorado, California, Arkansas, Texas, Alabama, Idaho, Indiana, Massachusetts, Maine, Mississippi, Virginia, Oklahoma, Utah, Wisconsin and Wyoming. Most of these were apparently dumped by fish owners who no longer wanted to care for their pet Pacus.
