A SAVAGE predator known as "Fishzilla" and a perch capable of climbing trees could soon reach the far north of Queensland.
Snakehead fish, native to tropical Africa and Asia, have an appetite for blood and can grow to a metre long,
The stars of a horror movie trilogy, snakehead fish are known to eat water birds, snakes and rodents.
They can live in poor environmental conditions, helped by their ability to breathe air - and in some cases, walk on land.
Climbing perch can travel across land on their pectoral fins and, as their name suggests, may even climb trees.
this reminds me of the cane toads in Australia. Sometimes it's crazy to have a foreign animal be brought in to another environment and thinking it won't be much of a threat to the other wild life.
Perhaps placing these in the Rio Grand River can help deter illegals from entering?
I remember watching one of the movies made 'based' on this fish. It was really chep, badly made and acted shows (made for tv), that you watch only because there is nothing else on. I laughed about it, until I found out they were real!!!!!
Here is a link to the movie review. It's called Snakehead Terror. Stars Bruce Boxleitner, which is probably why I watched it.
