VIDEO - Snakehead fish are a real horror for US Biologists...

Local man (Memphis) finds a snake head fish trying to cross a gravel road...


The invasive Asian snakehead fish can live out of water for up to three days; the ones found in Lee County, TN were up to two feet long.

Once Arkansas Game and Fish was able to chopper in and ID the fish, poison was used to destroy them as over 90 were found fairly easily (Phone interview with Jeff Farwick, Arkansas Fish and Game Commission).

Take a look here at the following videos to see exactly how large a trout and bass the snakehead can prey upon. A snakehead can cut a 10 inch bass in half in seconds!
