    Here are some picture of an extremely neat Pink Pacu. I had never heard of them before until recently. The Pink Pacu are at the bottom of the link posted here.:grinno:

    They have got the body structure of a giant Myleus schomburgkii.

    They are extremely neat looking. Some of the individuals look red on their entire body.

    Actually this last Jeremy Wade show is what inspire my fast research of this species. I found some pictures however I want to locate a scientific name and a description with more information about the species.

    I just ran a google search and this thread is top of the list of information about Pink Pacu. Seems there is not much information about these guys at all. More possibly though this species could be a relatively newly described species.

    I grabbed a few screen shots of the scene where he caught the Pink Pacu.
    I agree there doesnt seem to be much around for info on them. Perhaps they're 'Myleus pacu'? pinkpacu1.png pinkpacu2.png pinkpacu3.png pinkpacu4.png pinkpacu5.png pinkpacu6.png
