Testicle-eating fish could be headed to UK after being found in Paris

The ‘ball-cutter’ fish, which reportedly bites human testicles, could be on its way to the UK after being found in France.

Male swimmers in Britain could soon have to wear extra protection down below after the pacu was caught worryingly close to these shores in Paris’s Seine river.

Police in the French capital took a photo of the Amazon based fish and said it measured 1ft.

It can grow as large as 35in (90cm) and weigh up to 55lb (25kg).

The pacu, which has reportedly caused men to bleed to death after biting their testicles, had previously turned up in Sweden.

‘The pacu is not normally dangerous to people but it has quite a serious bite,’ said fish expert Henrik Carl.

‘There have been incidents in other countries, such as Papua New Guinea where some men have had their testicles bitten off.

‘They bite because they’re hungry, and testicles sit nicely in their mouth.’
