  • Human-Like Teeth found in Fish in the State of Michigan

Human-like teeth have been found in a fish in the state of Michigan. They present a strange sight indeed.

The scene is certainly macabre and at its worst it evokes sheer blood-curdling horror. It is like a YouTube video of bizarre and weird stuff that sets the hair on the back of your head on edge.

Rather like a human mouth implanted on the face of a fish, the sight of a piscean species found in Michigan is too much to bring into contemplation. It is creepy and sends one into mental shivers. 

The South American red-bellied pacu fish belongs in an aquarium. Its teeth are very much like that of an ordinary human being, according to Michigan's Department of Natural Resources (DNR).

Such fish have been found in two bodies of water in Michigan recently. This horrific fish is not a newcomer to the US. It has been here for awhile.

In fact, the current rediscovery of this fish is almost like an epilogue. Last summer, a pacu was brought into a boat from a lake in New Jersey by a shocked fisherman. This served only to add to the pre-existent list of New Jersey jokes and puns. 

It has even been called a testicle biter. However, no one needs to fear this fish since in actuality it is a vegetarian. It has been spotted in 27 states.

Aquarium owners get nervous and apprehensive as these fish grow to full-fledged maturity in captivity. The very sight of their teeth is a purely surreal experience.

Some of these aquarium owners may feel that the pacu fish ought to be released in the wild, according to CNet. This in itself may be due to guilt at harboring such a grotesque fish.

Yet this is not something to be taken lightly. Such fish when they are released in the waterways tend to spread diseases among other marine life forms. Also they upset food webs and destroy the natural ecology of a region. So that is not a very good idea.
