Fishing Khao Lak's Comment:
Very similar to Pirahna, but not the same species. It has a mouthfull
of large, almost human like teeth. A very fast growing fish
that gives a very good account for its self when hooked.
The biggest member of the Pacu family often underestimated
by many anglers until they actually hook one.
