The snakehead fish has hit the United States.
* Survives icy winters and oxygen-deprived waters
* Grows to three feet
* Can crawl out of water, wiggle across land for four days
* Capable of clearing out a pond of all living creatures and then wriggling on to new hunting grounds on its belly and fins.
“If you catch it, kill it,” said Bob Lunsford, biologist. “It’s not a dead or alive thing, we want it dead.”
Can you imagine having one of these fish in your acquarium? It hops out of the tank, waits for you to leave, and then eats all the food in your fridge!
The snakehead fish in defense of its bad rap has started a new public relations campaign in the U.S… “SNAKEHEAD… The friendly domesticated killer fish” And in order to further his quest for respect and admiration by Americans it’s driving a van cross country to stump for his cause!
