‘Testicle-Eating’ Piranha Relative Found in Russian Pond

The pacu is a cousin of the omnivorous piranha. Unlike its fearsome relative, it mostly subsists on a pacific diet of nuts and algae, but last summer media dubbed the pacu the “ball cutter” when another was caught far from home, this time in the Oresund Sound between Denmark and Sweden. News reports cited experts as saying that the fish was known for attacking the testicles of male swimmers in its native South America.
