    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 we have proven that birds can talk to each other intelligently. So this has to mean velociraptors could talk to each other. You heard it here on SciShow first people velociraptors had written language.

    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.
