Saw some dead ones in Va... Up there its damn near an epidemic. There have been several lakes where they killed every single living organism because somebody "saw" a snakehead. They are a complete scourge, thought to be severely hurting the bass population of the potomac river already. Worst problem is their reproduction rate. And to answer your post, no I do not have a picture, but figured I would add my .02

pretty interesting, i saw the show where they wiped out the lakes.

i have heard people catching them down south and was wondering which variety we have. i'm always out to catch a new species.
