Predator Fish That Can Walk and Breathe Air Is Making Headway in the US

Read the full story at Treehugger.

It doesn’t get much spookier than the toothy northern snakehead, a carnivorous fish that grows to at least three feet in length, can breathe air and can survive for several days out of water. It can survive for even longer periods in mud and moist environments. Oh, and it travels over land by wriggling its body along the ground.

The fish inspired exclamatory headlines when it made an appearance in New York City’s Central Park, but the more concerning news is that it keeps on showing up in places it shouldn’t be. Snakeheads have been found in at least 14 states.
