    Fish Caught With Human-Like Teeth

    Strange.


    A fish caught in Lubbock, Texas, with teeth that look like they belong to a human has baffled wildlife officials in the area, according to a report.

    Fisherman Scott Curry reeled in the 20-pound fish on Buffalo Springs Lake and immediately noticed the catch had human-like teeth.

    A game warden photographed the fish and is attempting to identify it.

    General Manager of Buffalo Springs Lake Greg Thornton told KLBK13-TV in Texas that he has never seen anything like the fish in the 36 years he has lived near the lake.

    A search for what the fish may be suggested that it may be a pacu, which is found in South America.

    Curry said he believes he saw another similar fish while on the lake.

    A Texas television station reported that lake officials will give $100 to anyone catching a similar fish.

    oh wait... i skipped over the URL.
    sorry.
    that does look something like a Pacu (the body does anyways).
    unfortunately, i have never been blessed with the opprotuinity to look at a pacu's teeth up close; but a Pacu is a tetra, meaning it has some form of tooth. Pirhanna are also tetras incase you didnt already know, and everyone knows about pirhanna teeth. based on what i have read; Pacu eat tough vegitation matter; so they have big strong thick teeth... while pirhanna have pointy "rip a chunk of your leg off" teeth.
    despite that, i believe [not sure] that Pacu teeth are more pointed than the ones pictured.
    hard to tell.
