The Michigan Department of Natural Resources announced Tuesday several reports of fishermen catching an invasive species of fish with “squarish” human-like teeth that reportedly has a false reputation for eating human testicles.
“Reeling in a pacu would be a surprise, perhaps even a shock to anyone fishing in Michigan,” the DNR said a news release. “Though it looks somewhat like a native shad, the pacu’s squarish, blunt teeth clearly set it apart. It isn’t similar to any native, toothed fish, including trout, muskellunge or northern pike.”
This is absolutely terrifying. I mean these fish don’t even use whitening strips. – m
