    The Pacu is only invasive in certain places. In some rivers they are the only plant eaters there and basically cause no harm to the rest of the system.

    Hank, check out a show called River Monsters. Jeremy has researched the Pacu and in the location he went to, they call this fish Ball Biter for a reason. 😥
    It's the real deal according to Jeremy of River Monsters. Gives me the Heeby Jeebies! 🤤

    The birds flying together are like a distributed network. Each member keeps track of the closest members so no one collides. I wonder if babblers are saving time and energy to think about other things in flight, and the in flight call is just notifying nearby birds of a trajectory change in case they're not paying attention. Like the bird equivalent of a turning signal.

    1. Do pacu teeth have human-similar roots-maybe we can grow false teeth of fish teeth... 2. You underestimate bird-uistics, that 'ab' means 'look up' and the 'b-' prefix means 'parent' so 'bab' means 'look up to to the parent, for food'...

    When I saw "fish with humanlike teeth" in the description I thought it was going to be way more mind bending than it was. A non-mammal with heterodont teeth would be a mind-blowing example of convergent evolution that would forever change the way we classify mammals. Alas, however, "human-like" merely meant flat, and so it's just another fish with teeth. :(

    So pacu are a tropical fish. With this in mind I do not understand how they could become an invasive species in places like New Jersey or Scandinavia. I did a little research and the low end of their temp tolerance is about 7.5C or around 45.5F. To be invasive they would need to be able to breed as well. As no one has been able to get them to breed naturally in captivity it is hard to say what parameters need to be meet for them to breed. Speculating from success of breeding piranha (they are from the same waters) the temp would need to be between 75F and 80F. The waters in Northern regions would not sustain these high temps long enough for pacu to breed or more importantly for any possible fry to live long enough to survive the colder winter temperatures.
