snakeheads are fish that eat other fish larger than itself!!they are meateaters and can travel hundreds of miles of ocean.most people believe that snakeheads cannot be able to stop!![incase you put a electric fence around your pond,just kiddin]they can slither on its stomach like a snake.they can live on land for at lease nine hours!!!THATS ALOT!!!many people catch these over-populated creatures almost every day,they do attack humans that fish these dangerous pretators!!Most people let them back into the water{bad idea}because they dont know what the creature is!!do you think they will destroy the population of fish, since they eat fish?

my tip=watch where you swim!!!

I shoot em. sad part is BOWFIN looks ALOT like snakehead and while both are rough fish it gives the bowfin( great fighting fish) less chance of surviving being harpooned.

Yes I bowfish like most catholics go to church.

yep, like many other states. we got em here, infact a 20# snakehead was just caught alst month in wisconsin infact 3 were caught out of the same body of water. they arent illegal to own just illegal to release, if you do relae even the corpse its a federal violation.

USDA,EPA and DNR's across the country have the same laws on the books.

east coast is worse because of that dispstick asian guy who released them into a retention pond in maryland right on he potomac, they left the pond and have now put a big dent in the native species of the potomac. its scary to be honest, that fish is a wild pig not a fish./

I personally as a conservationist think that ANYONE that owns one of these fishes needs an exotic animal liscense due to the voracious appetite and their ability to destroy an eco system in a matter of days.

They can live out of water for days and can "walk" on land.

IMO its the worst invader species of them all


Know the differences

id look into a bowfin instead. they are kinda similar but dont destory its environment like snakeheads do. meaning they can be kept with other bigger fish even panfish.
