Warning to Male Swimmers: Pacu Fish Wants Your Testicles
Yikes! Men who like to fish, or swim in Illinois may want to know about an ugly little fish with a large set of teeth named Pacu.
Pacu is a hungry little fish that wants to eat your testicles, sort of like Jaws in your drawers, according to Papua New Guinea natives who call Pacu by its other name, “the ball cutter.”
The Pacu can weigh more than 50 pounds and was recently spotted in Lake Lou Yaeger in Illinois. The Illinois Lake Superintendent Jim Caldwell cautions that the Pacu eat mostly snails and nuts, (the other kind of nuts), and are not a threat to humans.
However, the natives claim that the Pacu is dangerous, especially to well-endowed men.
