Those pacu must have really good aim, considering how cold our lakes are.

Pacu were the last of the Legal piranna style fish sold in washington in the 1990's . Most look just like red belly pirannas and the teeth are just as sharp
. they were said to be veggie fish but not with those chompers =O

They could appropriately make illegal dumping of those fish punishable by castration. Unless, of course, it is a woman doing the dumping. She could be punished by Asian hornets.

When I lived in Arizona an insect was drilling a hole in our oleander tree. However it was not producing saw dust; these were good sized chips coming from the hole.   Upon further investigation I found it be a huge bee. I tapped the oleander and it attacked.  Like a Huey gunship.  My only weapon was a badminton racket.  I hit a nice forehand and staggered the beast in mid-air.  Ahh. Only mid-air stall/stun!  It comes back for more.  A fierce backhand put it away.  Formidable foe!

Are these for real?

I just read on CNN news today that they are invading our state from Canada looking to munch on honeybee's.

Some of them being two inches long?!

^ Yep, they're for real.  Here's the WSDA post on them: Asian Giant Hornet Inch and a half long!   eek.gif  They could decimate the honeybee population.  We beekeepers have a hard enough time with yellow jackets.

I saw the article too.   Those things look terrifying.   Worse for the honey bees though.   Yikes!

The tolerances are amazing.  The hornet can survive temperatures up to 115 F, the bees 118, so they bring it up to 117.  Talk about a finely tuned machine!
