Bullseye Snakehead

 

The bullseye snakehead is an invasive species from Southeast Asia.  It has become established in Southeastern Florida, in the canals and ditches that surround Miami/Dade Counties. Unlike the related Northern Snakehead, the Bullseye Snakehead cannot survive cold winters, and thus will probably not extend its invasion much beyond south Florida. A voracious predator, this exotic fish is known to prey on small fishes, lizards, frogs, toads, and small rodents. It reaches a maximum size of 48 inches (!).
