Re: NANFA-L-- Texas Man Catches Fish With Human-Like Teeth
Thu, 20 Jul 2006 11:50:08 EDT

I've kept pacu in a pond in my greenhouse and they ate meat. They ate baby
turtles like they were going out of style. They would also eat fresh shrimp,
they might prefer plants but mine ate what ever I fed them. The baby turtles
were from a nest a turtle laid in my greenhouse. When they hatched I took the
babies to the pond and almost lost them all to the pacu. It could be they were
just hungry due to lack of sufficient plant food to satisfy them. In the
wild they might be a lot more picky.
