4. Now the pacu is making waves because one was found on Aug. 4th in the waters between Sweden and Denmark. Henrik Carl of the Natural History Museum of Denmark talked about the pacu in the most horrifying way possible:
“They bite because they’re hungry, and testicles sit nicely in their mouth,” he explained. “And its mouth is not so big, so of course it normally eats nuts, fruit, and small fish, but human testicles are just a natural target. It’s not normal to get your testicles bitten off, of course, but it can happen, especially now in Sweden.”

I’ve also heard, I can’t remember where exactly, but there have been other places in the States where people have had some strange bite marks.
