Not only can they breathe atmospheric air, but they can also survive on land for up to four days, provided they are wet, and are known to migrate up to 1/4 mile on wet land to other bodies of water by wriggling with their body and fins. National Geographic
has referred to snakeheads as "Fishzilla"
and the National Geographic Channel
reports that the "northern snakehead reaches sexual maturity by age 2 or 3. Each spawning-age female can release up to 15,000 eggs at once. Snakeheads can mate as often as five times a year. This means in just two years, a single female can release up to 150,000 eggs."
Since 2002 it has been illegal to possess a live snakehead in many U.S. states, where they are considered a destructive invasive species
