I believe snakeheads are either banned or are in the process of being banned. A couple of months ago the media got a hold of story involving a snake head that came ashore on land. I don't remember exactly where. But anyway the media made them out to be these monsters that could survive in land for short periods of time. The big stink was that they would eat anything that crossed their paths even fido the chihuahua. All of bunch of B.S. Ever since that exagerated story legislation began on banning all snakeheads.
