There is a fish that can breathe air and survive on land and if you find one officials want you to cut the head off as soon as possible…

For the first time this fish has been found in Georgia.  And officials are warning anyone who comes into contact with the species to kill it immediately.

While this is the first time it’s been discovered in Georgia, snakeheads have been reported in 14 states nationwide. Thankfully there have been no reports in Michigan yet…

The long, thin fish has a dark brown blotchy appearance and can grow up to three feet in length. It can also breathe air, and survive in low oxygenated systems, including on land.
