Uh oh. I think that's a pacu, not the regular flesh-munching red-bellied pirhana. However, if you follow ol' green teeth in river monsters, they have a show where the pacu is taking a river over and it does bite, very hard with human-like teeth. They caught one out of Allatoona because there's a record for it. I'm not sure how long ago that was, but I don't know of any infestations yet. It may not be able to survive the cold very well. :?:

Yeah, I think it is a pacu althought the seed eater did smack a tube jig. They guy that caught it almost lipped it :o

Probably would of had one less finger. Says they can grow to 60lbs in the wild rendering them useless as bait :lol:

People just don't understand what they could be potentially doing to an ecosystem when they let their pets go. :evil:
