    Hi all:

    Just to keep my American cousins up to date on some news events happening here in England, this evil looking thing was pulled out of a drain in Lincolnshire (east coast) over the weekend.

    The Environment Agency's in a right panic over it 'cos apparently they're supposed to be tough as well as vicious. They're native to S.E. Asia so it was obviously thrown in by somebody.

    There are two varieties of snakehead one gets quite large and they are potentially a danger to all water in North America. They are extremely agressive and will attack people or anything else in water. I watched a documentary on them. They're breeding habits make them sucessful in most enviroments! Think how the asian carp has taken over and picture it with rows of teeth!
