Say Hello to HuffPost Live’s Testicle-Eating Little Friend

HuffPostLivePacu

The scaly star in question is scheduled to appear on HuffPost Live this afternoon at 5:45 p.m. ET and currently has a hashtagged campaign rolling on its behalf. If you think you have the perfect name for this testicle-eating pacu creature adopted as a HuffPost Live pet, tweet the 24/7 content gang with the hashtag #pacu.
