    With their voracious appetite, they will eventually wipe out native species of fish.

    No they will not, don't be so dramatic. They coexist with many other species of fish in their native waters.

    No they will not. Snakeheads have been in United States for 20 years and the natives are still here.

    Snakeheads are known to eat small pets and children. There have been documented cases of children snatched from their beds at night in some Asian countries. In the wild, they have a varied diet. When they are in the water, they will eat anything from fish to dolphins to crocodiles. On land, they will eat deer, boar, dogs, wolves, people, pets, and anything that is 2/3 of their total length. They also have the ability to walk on land for days out of water. In fact, they are almost like amphibians. Inside their powerful, bone crunching jaws are rows of razor sharp teeth. Combine this with the fact that they can grow to 5 feet long, you've got yourself a monster. They make alligators seem like guppies.

    Would you like it if they lived in your local waters and started eating the fish you fish for? Just look at how many were caught in such a small waterway.

    And how do you control the expanding snakehead population?
