I dunno. Even if that thing survives shallow, active waters long enough to get anywhere, it's going to get shredded by the first pike that comes across it.

I'm more worried about snakeheads:

Now this story is about the environment (am sure climate is in here somewhere should I need to dig) which falls under society, culture, religion etc..and it is News and Current events and extended.. and it is an editorial and government related as well-see Federal fish fighters & crap..ooops carp!..

Therefore you change to Pets/animals??? and Outdoors??? I think I saw a toliet bowl horror scenario mentioned as well..for now it is outside but...

I ask that you reconsider the return to Topics as News/activism etc above.

Will watch for the change back. ;)

I rest my case...........

Funny you should ask about the Ecosystem:

Monday, June 05, 2006 New ecosystem found in cave

"So far, scientists have found eight species living in the cave, and all eight are previously unknown. The cave includes marine and freshwater portions, and is probably 5 million years old, said scientist Hanan Dimantman."

Chat...? ;) Science is news, remember the ecosystem. I should have named the thread Osama Bin Laden Discovered Living in a Cave, failed plastic surgery leaves world famous terrorist disfigured beyond human recognition.

“...whatever they can do to stop the terrifying beast from entering the Great Lakes”

What can we do to rid DC of this terrifying species?
