Freaks of nature ... they really do exist.

Yeah. I saw that was on and tried to get the wife to turn to it, but we were eating dinner, and she said no! I said it's a fish!! I lost and we watched the weather channel for an hour instead! Not very exciting.

Is that the fish that can go from lake to lake on land even if they are a few miles apart?

Snakeheads can become invasive species and cause ecological damage because they are top-level predators, meaning that they have no natural enemies outside of their native environment. 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 on wet land to other bodies of water by wriggling with their body and fins.

Aren't those the one's that keep hurting and killing people in boats and on PWCs because they jump when a boat approaches? I thought so but I may be wrong.

Yup - you were right

BATH, Ill. -- Tom Matych was driving a pontoon boat up the Illinois River, scouting for Asian carp, when a 20-pounder shot out of the water and ricocheted off the side of his head.
"I got a good-sized knot on my head," Matych said. "It was like getting hit with a bowling ball."

We've had them here, on the potomac for a couple years now. They made a big deal about how they were going to desimate the fish population and be the worst thing. Then.... nothing happened. We haven't heard anything of them since. I'm not saying that they didn't survive, but it's not nearly the big deal they made it out to be.
