Forget shark week. This fish needs its own week. It looks terrifying!
No. It is not a piranha. The South American Native Pacu is the friendly, vegetarian, nut-loving cousin of the piranha. That’s right. This fish loves nuts. All nuts (so to speak).
“Gentlemen beware,” was the warning sent to male Scandinavian skinny-dippers (I guess skinny-dipping is a big thing there?). These fish like to crush nuts with their strong jaws and often make the unfortunate mistake of choosing the wrong “nut” due to the cold water effect (so to speak).
So if you DO want to go skinny dipping in the ice cold Scandinavian waters, go ahead, I just hope you didn’t plan on having children.
This fish is a real ball buster!
