    Default Pacus Fish With Human-like Teeth....Strange But True !!

    Well I almost put this on the lighter thread then realised it was real !...LOL
    It looks like something out of a 'Monty Python' sketch....I was looking to see if I
    could find some info about 'The Norwegian alians with 24 teeth ' that Charles Hall
    talks about in another thread.He suggests they are related to the Saami people
    or Laps from northern Scandinavia/Russia.Which I cannot find any mainstream
    medical info on.Anyway I did come across this which I thought was a fake/spoof
    photo...LOL..But apparently they are real so I posted on the general thread,
    because it 'tickled' me...LOL......

    What a wonderfull weird world !!!






    Pacu fish, cousins to the piranha and known as “frugivores,” have human-like teeth that can crack nuts and fruits.



    In the Amazon River there lives the pacu, a relative of the piranha. The pacu has a similar shape to the piranha but can grow to be much larger, weighing in at over 50 pounds. And also similar to the piranha are its set of teeth, but with an interesting twist. They look more like a set of human molars as the pacu primarily feeds on nuts and seeds which it crushes and grinds up with its teeth and powerful jaws.

    The tongue looks very human too... Maybe it is some fugitive from genetic laboratory? Or some piranha was feeding on people and partially became one through assimilation of human DNA. After all we become what we eat

    Hey mate,

    The Pacu is a very common fish here in Brazil.

    IŽve fished a few myself when I was a kid!

    Cheers,

    Raf.

    Well, maybe you should give your Pacus a closer look, because they have such sort of teeth indeed.

    IŽve fished a few of them and I can guarantee that!

    Anyway, just search pacu + dentes in google images and youŽll see other images.

    Cheers,

    Raf.

    PS: Just found out that Pacu is just a general name which includes many different kinds of fish. Maybe yours is from another species.
    However, here in Brazil, Pacu is a popular name for that fish with weird human like teeth.

    We all know that Piranha's has razor sharp teeth and get rip through flesh with ease, so does my Pacu's. All this talk about Pacu's eating nuts ???
    If I gave my Pacu's nuts to eat, They would jump out the tank and beat me up for insulting them.. at feeding time, they are the first to attack and not my Black Piranha's.
    The pacu's been twice the size of the piranha's, would explain that? or maybe mine is just a one off?
    Raf..Please make sure that it is Pacu's and not red belly Pirahna;s you're fishing out. Or you will find that your 6 fingers becoming 5 like the rest of us
    Cheers..

    Hahahaha! IŽve fished some piranhas as well in the past!

    They are very common here.

    Anyway, you can learn more about the Pacu here:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pacu

    Indeed, besides the piranhas, the pacu have a "crushing jaw system, used primarily for eating seeds and nuts".

    IŽm starting to think that your fish dealer sold you a piranha, instead of a pacu!

    Cheers,

    Raf.
