Residents of Papua New Guinea may beg to differ. There, according to British fisherman Jeremy Wade, the pacu is known as the "ball cutter." In 2011, Wade said locals informed him that two fisherman had died from blood loss after something in the water had bitten off their testicles, according to the Metro."The locals told me that this thing was like a human in the water, biting at the testicles of fishermen," Wade said.Wade determined that the perpetrator was the pacu, which is known for having human-like teeth.
