The snakehead is a freshwater fish native to much of eastern Asia, but has been introduced to other parts of the world, including North America, where it has become an invasive species. They are eel-like in appearance, and can reach a length of 1 meter (3.3 ft). They are predatory, and can survive out of water for extended periods of time.
