    That Fox link is full of browser-stalling ads and unwanted, off-topic videos.

    Here are some pics of the mutant spawn of Satan fish, from other sites.

    From article:
    "In my opinion, I’d rank snakehead up with mahi-mahi and flounder as an excellent eating fish. I prefer snakehead over tilapia, salmon, cod, and catfish. If the restaurant industry in Maryland, Virginia, and D.C., can figure out how to bring the fish to market in quantity, and fishermen can figure out how to supply that market, the effort might help keep the invasive snakehead population in the Potomac River and the Chesapeake Bay watershed under control. There is no arguing that the fish tastes good."

    snakehead is supposed to be good eating.

    They can get very large, and when spawning they are VERY aggressive and protective of their fry. A big momma snake head can send an unwitting swimmer to the ER for a lot of stitches.

    If you catch one, in order to kill it you need to cut it's head off. They can live for days out of water and that's how they spread so prolifically. In the rain, they can leave the water and walk on land for long distances until they find a new water hole. Dams, waterfalls, etc do nothing to stop their progress. They have almost no natural predators except for eachother and have very good vision, and can eat anything up to nearly their own body size. Baby alligators, ducks, sport fish, snakes, birds, ANYTHING they can sink their teeth into. If you catch one, kill it with a vengeance. Big, small, whether you want to eat it or not.

    There is actually a made for TV b-horror movie called "snakehead terror" :lol:

    Summary from IMDB:

    A small town, desperate to recover from hard economic times, is under threat when voracious Snakehead fish mutate and survive previous lake chemical poisonings. The fish transform from pests to predators when human growth hormones are dumped into the local lake in the hopes of reviving the local fishing industry. Thriving on the hormones, the Snakehead fish grow to monstrous proportions, devouring everything within reach. Capable of moving and eating on land, they are forced to leave the now barren lake in a desperate search for food - animal, vegetable or human.

    Wonder how they would do in those lakes oh say within a 100 mile radius of the State Capitol building? Wonder what flavor of human they would prefer?
