Another Pacu (yeah, the testicle-eating fish) has been found, this time in a lake near Seattle, Wash. John Denton caught the beastly fish in Lake Ki in Marysville, Wash., and the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife says it's 17 inches long. 

The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife's Jeff Holmes explained to the Huffington Post that the fish was probably dumped into the lake because it was entirely too large for its owner's tank. The Huffington Post notes that Pacu can grow to be as large as four feet, and grow very quickly. 

Two weeks ago, a 10-inch Pacu was caught in Passaic, N.J. They pose a threat to swimmers because they have large teeth, powerful jaws and have bitten human testicles in the past.
