Saw this on the FB. WTF are these things!? At first I thought Asian carp, then saw the frickin teeth on em. Some kind of Oscar or piranha? Or is the dude wading in a Chernobyl waste pond?
Big Pacu can eat Brazil nuts. Fruits and nuts fallen from overhanging trees are what they're primarily best adapted to eat. Stories about them eating a man's nads are just that.I watched River Monsters and the Pacu were introduced over in Asia somewhere the food isn't the same. The pacu nipped the nuts off of some fishermen and swimmers.
