Warning, men shouldn't skinny dip in S.E.Asia

Posted by sayadian on 5/9/2013 at 10:06

I just read that the Pacu, a fish with very sharp, human like teeth can be found off the coasts of South-East Asia. In fact fishermen enjoy the ferocious fight the Pacu puts up. It is closely related to the pirhana. There have been genuine reports of men having their testicles bitten off by Pacu. So think again when you go in the sea au naturel

Pacu is a fresh water fish...

Also the only place you are likely to find them are in some fishing ponds that have decided to stock them.

You're right. So let that read skinny dipping in the rivers of S.E. Asia.

Not to mention Schistosomiasis (Bilharzia)............
In freshwater that is.
