A fish with cojones……… someone elses cojones!

Now I knew that carnivorous fish existed; when growing up the Piranha was always portrayed as a tiny monster in books and films. More recently we have seen foot pedicures carried out by fish that remove the hard skin from your feet. But until now I had never heard of the Pacu Fish which is known to have recently castrated two men by biting off their testicles. The resulting blood loss caused their deaths.

The fish originate from the Amazon region where they need their strong sharp teeth to break open the tough shells of nuts and seeds. They have been introduced to Papua New Guinea and have now had to resort to meat-eating owing to a lack of their usual diet. Although clearly they still have a taste for nuts of a different type.

Is it just me or do these look like human teeth?

I've been on the planet for a more than half a century and I've lost all my hair but not my enthusiasm for life, my wife, reading and music! I started my first blog; With Just A Hint Of Mayhem in February 2009. In May 2011 I began two sister blogs to that first one; With Just A Hint Of Amelia and With Just A Hint Of Learning. A while later I also added the more random Stars In My Glasses to the family :-) Feel free to check them all out and let me know what you think!
