    Asia. There was a show on them on the Discovery channel (I think). They found them first in MD if I remember right and now they've found them in several other places in the Northeast.

    I've watched the video also on youtube along with on a tv documentary. That has to be one mean fish there. Sure glad so far we have none in the Ohio valley yet.

    under 12 inches long you get $10, 13-24 inches you get $25 and over 24 inches you get $50, lol they have a bounty on them because they shouldnt be in American waters, they spawn in large numbers and they compete for all the food with other fish

    Yes they are a very bad deal and i heard of reports in southern states too they get up to six feet long and eat anything the say swimming in waters with them is very dangerous they better do something about them now.

    That is crazy. I just went to you tube and watched a few videos of them. They are weird looking. And they are also very aggressive. I would hate to have to deal with one of those if I ever caught one. If they can do that to a fish just imagine what it would do to your hand.

    Yea the snake head is an extremely aggressive fish frome Asia. I think they got in the water systems frome people dumping them when they got to big for their aquariums. I am in the tropical fish business and they have been illegal for some years now because some people are irresponsible. It definitley is one cool fish if you keep it in a large aquarium and oh boy are they mean.
