Northern Snakehead Fish Invades North America

This fish seems like something out of a horror film. The Snakehead is meat-eating fish that is native to southeast Asia and has found itself most recently in American lakes such as Lake Michigan. 

The weirdest part about this fish is that it is said to be able to survive out of water for 7 days and can even “walk” on land using it’s fins! Scientist in Maryland made plans to exterminate their population of Snakehead fish, dubbed the Frankenfish in local media.

Although the Snakehead fish is scary, they shouldn’t be considered dangerous to anything other than the other fish living in a close proximity. If you find a Snakehead fish in your pond you should contact a professional to assist you in the management of your pond or lake.
