The biggest fear for most surfers and ocean swimmers is coming across a shark in the open water but in Papua New Guinea locals are also fearful of a mysterious beast known as the 'ball cutter.' The Pacu fish has human-like teeth and loves to bite off testicles to ensure a slow death.

The country of Papua New Guinea generally flies under the radar of mainstream society, but with a recent documentary film "Splinters" about the first-ever National Surfing Championship in Papua New Guinea and how it changed the lives of several surfers from the host village of Vanimo, the country is receiving positive attention.

Uncrowded perfect waves are normally enough to spark the interest of surfers from all over to book their tickets for Papua New Guinea, but news of a recent discovery has surfers thinking twice.

Papua New Guinea has received unwanted attention with rumors of a mysterious beast which attacks young fishermen. As you can imagine this type of news does not help tourism.

It gets worse as the Pacu fish which they believe to be the mysterious beast is a 40lb fish known in the region as 'The Ball Cutter,' has been responsible for the deaths of a couple of fishermen who bled to death after bites to their testicles.

The Ball Cutter boasts an impressive set of man-like molars, which tear off the testicles of unwitting hunters, leaving them to bleed to death.

It's been reported the Amazonian vegetarian fish adapted to eat meat in the Papua New Guinea wild with its powerful teeth and jaw.

One things for sure the castration of young fishermen will do nothing to help the eco-tourism fishing economy of Papua New Guinea.

Jeremy Wade, the man credited with capturing the fish spent 14 weeks travelling around the world from Australia to Suriname in South America to film his third series of his hit show this year. He captured a total of seven beasts, including an electric eel which stopped human hearts in Brazil, before releasing them back into the wild.

Thanks to Nate Hoppes from GrindTV for the insight!

    I watched the doco on this fish some time ago. The found the man who supposedly died by having his nuts bitten off alive and well. The story started from a newspaper aticle. It is bad enough getting reruns on TV but more and more it seems to be happening in the news

    This fish is NOT from the Amazon, it's a hybrid, bred in Tasmania by bend-over Bob Brown and let loose in PNG for sea trials. They are all paid up members of the Greens and have been bred to rid the world of testicles thus creating a nutless mob of shims that would have to join the Greens.
