the ball cutter fish WE1

Fish with teeth are one of my biggest fears, so you can imagine my horror after finding out there’s a fish that not only has horrifying teeth, but also uses its teeth to bite off human testicles…

The Pacu or “ball cutter”, is native to South America, and is a relative of the bastards known as Piranha.

A fisherman caught a 21cm Pacu somewhere off the coast of Sweden, and as expert, Henrik Carl, at a museum warned; “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

The warning continued with this; “They bite because they’re hungry, and testicles sit nicely in their mouth. 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.”

What kind of horrible joke is the existence of this thing!? Keep your pants on, guys…
