I can't believe a whole population was surviving winters with no help. And what native-to-THAT-area species are they going to eat in farm ponds?
That was a population of Northern Snakeheads, perfectly capable of living through a Maryland winter. They ponds they were in were about 250 yards from the Patapsco river, which drains into the Chesapeake Bay, we have enough problems with the bay without Snakeheads added to the list.

Yeah, those are the fish I had referred to. They had to poison the ponds. Did they eradicate the snakeheads and were the ponds eventually restocked with native species?

Wow, Northern snakehead. You really think they could tolerate the chill, huh. I wouldn't have thought so. I guess that may have been bad.
if nothing ate it on its way to the river.


heh..now I have the mind picture of me calling up the street "wuuu-hoo! Wuuoooo-loooong" and asking my korean neighbors if they have seen my walking eel around. 8O

No, they'd probably be the ones calling YOU to complain that your walking bichir dug up their petunias, broke open their garbage bags, and chewed up their newspaper before leaving a crap on their sidewalk!

so glad you found him in time!!!! where do the stairs lead to??? he was obviously a fish on a mission? but what mission??
we lost one of our algae eating shrimps a few weeks ago........found him heading for the kitchen sink unfortunately didnt find him in time to save him but hed got about 4 metres, around the sofa, through the door , we have a pretty tight fitting lid so its still a bit of a mystery how he got out.

He was coming up from the converteed basement t oteh main floor. To sound?
Hoping for dinner?


Now I am imaginning him staked out... with the dog (who'd prolly be at the far end of her chain to avoid him) 0_o.... JUSt SToooOOOPIt! I am dying here!
I'd prolly have someone stop and ask if he 's poisonous and put the hand near as asking. To decided an answer..hmmmm.

And people asking if I caught him in these lakes...hah!
