snakehead-fish_1_072702What does a Fish with teeth that can live on land for up to four days out of water mean? Terror, sheer terror.

Predator fish that walks and breathes is on the loose in Central Park
The fish that is making wildlife agencies skittish is an invasive species native to China, Russia and Korea. Snakeheads are top predators and feed ravenously on other fish as well as frogs, crayfish and aquatic insects. (Your puppies and children are safe. Probably.)
