Oct 31, 2010: Fish Story
From the Austrian Times comes the story of Dan Nowak entering a fishing contest at, "a power station reservoir in Rybnik, Poland".
But the really strange part, nobody would believe it's a Piranha, because of it's teeth.
It looks like it ate a human, and swallowed everything but the dentures.

I guess he caught it with a fishing pole.

Yeah, that's what I was going to say - 49cm and

OMG. That thing is disgusting!

When you haul something like that in ..... you should always be aware ... its MOMMY is lurking around somewhere .....

It's been a bad week for bad week for monstrously big animals.

If there's confusion, send the venison to the Cellar. We'll taste it all, and let you know.

Who's heating up the grease?

I see my plan for breeding humans with fish is working!

I feel fairly confident in saying that they do not use inches in Europe.

Those aren't piranha teeth. These are piranha teeth:

Maybe a big one is older and has been wearing its teeth down longer.

Its most likely a Pacu. I'm not sure how he caught it though since it is a vegetarian species.
xoxoxoBruce Monday Nov 1 04:11 PM
It could be a Pacu, he said he was fishing for Carp, so he might have been using a baitball. That's something a Pacu, especially that size, might gobble whole.
classicman Monday Nov 1 05:00 PM
That makes infinitely more sense. I admit to not reading the article.

Oh, just one more thing... Pacu are well(?)-known for their human-like teeth.
Clodfobble Thursday Nov 4 12:27 AM
I've always said that humans are well-known for their Pacu-like teeth. After all, evolutionarily speaking, I'm pretty sure they had them first.
classicman Thursday Nov 4 09:48 AM
I thought it was a Pacu, but I had no idea how big they got...
Sundae Thursday Nov 4 02:05 PM
For example I do not know my height in centimetres, despite being brought up in the metric age. Ditto weight in kg. And we still talk about miles, although I'm more likely to use metres for smaller distances (blame athletics)
I do deal in degrees celsius though.
Just to be difficult.

Yabbut you don't talk about weight in pounds either. You use stones, ya bunch of weirdos.

Is that photo to scale?

how is he holding it with just one hand that's off center? You might assume his other hand is in back, but what could he possibly be holding onto there? There don't appear to be any fins on the sides of the fish. That picture looks all weird. Maybe he's stabbing it with a knife on the other side and holding it that way.
classicman Friday Nov 5 11:18 AM
Makes the fish look ginormous.
Maybe its shopped.. Shrug...
ETA - Just google "Pacu" and look at the images... there are a ton of them.
