Default Scandinavian skinny-dippers warned of testicle-biting fish



Just when you thought it was safe to go back into the water, as the saying goes, male skinny-dippers in Scandinavia are being warned about a fish infamous for munching on testicles.

Yes, you read that right.

The Pacu, native to South America, was found by a fisherman in the Danish/Swedish strait of Oresund, according to experts at the Natural History Museum of Denmark.

Though the fish has big teeth and looks menacing, it is generally known as a friendly cousin of the piranha. The Pacu's large teeth aren't as sharp as the piranha's but are "fully capable" of severing fishing lines and fingers, the museum's experts said. Oh yeah, and the Pacu is vegetarian, unlike it's meat-eating cousin.

So why should swimmers beware? Pacu fish love crushing nuts with their powerful jaws and sometimes can mistake the male reproductive organs for their favorite snack.
Just how the exotic fish ended up in Scandinavian waters is a bit of a mystery, the museum said.

"Amateur aquarium owners and fish farmers are "the usual suspects" when we meet fish where they do not belong," said the museum's Peter Rask Moller.

Museum experts said they are going to perform a genetic examination on the Pacu found in the fisherman's nets to learn more about the fish.

Meantime, the advice of the museum's experts is this: "Anyone choosing to bathe in the Oresund these days had best keep their swimsuits well tied."

It wouldn't be the first time something fishy took a man's balls.

While the story may be true the picture is just a touched up Photoshop of my ex. Indeed the pacu is the replacement for exotic aquarium owners who want pirhanas but are unable to get them. Being that they are vegetarian I would just as soon have an Oscar.


shouldn't Scandinavian skinny dippers be more concerned with their nuts being nibbled on by Loch Ness monsters?

This is old news. Don't you guys watch River Monsters?

Fish do some of the scariest things. There is something out there that will swim up your penis if you're pissing in the wrong place at the wrong time. I shit you not!
