    Exclamation snakeheads for sale in USA?

    i was looking for a store near me that has exotic fish and i found one that has marbled snakeheads, red snakeheads,and blotched snakeheads on their fish listings. i thought that snakeheads were illegal. i also heard that the government is being lenient on the smaller species of snakeheads? well, anyway, i was wondering if anyone could give me more info on these species of snakeheads, and of other "dwarf" species. i am considering getting one if they have them.thanks.

    Sorry, a little far away to understand (in the UK) why are Snakeheads illegal in the US?

    the large northern snakeheads and other large species have invaded our waterways especially in the south. but i have heard that maryland has also been invaded. so they are illegal

    The most appropriate course of action would be to buy them, then report the store to the authorities

    Man, what part of the tos dealing with restricted species do you guys not understand.

    Hate to be your party pooper, but, what if the authorities decided to take action against not only the op but this web site for encouraging the trade of said species.
