IMO they spent to much time making the snakehead look like a monster. They(snakeheads) only do what is natural to them it's all instinct. The real monsters are the people that release them into our lakes and streams. Just my opinion..

not sure if you ever watch monster quest, it's on History Channel. Kind of lame IMO, they never find a real monster...
But they have an episode called "Giant Fish" tells about a red tail that ate a boy, they never actually catch a big one. But interesting episode.
got a short outtake on the redtail story:

I've got the show on tape... Kind of bumbed they never touched on them being kept in home aquaria and kind of bumbed they didn't have more footage of them....

Releasing any fish like that into our lakes and rivers is nuts...last time I was at the lfs, I was talking to one of the girls about how I love oscars and she said it was too bad, that there had been a woman who had 2 oscars about 10" long and she wanted to drop them off there, but the lfs had to tank space free for them. ...the next time the woman came in they had asked her if she found a home for them and the woman said she dumped them in the columbia River!!!! :x
Not only was that not responsible, but that's a glacier fed river :x Poor things :(

Three years ago (I think) a local kid caught a pirahna in one of our area lakes (Northern Indiana). The DNR was called in and they said it had to have just been released that summer because there is no way it could survive the winter temps. But judging from the size of this thing it had been around awhile. Maybe thats why its former host got rid of it...grew more than expected. Then one has to wonder about hybridization with a bluegill / sunfish... they are relatively aggressive in their own right.

Better to have them dead than becoming an invasive species!

No doubt but that's not a nice way to get rid of something you're tired of
