Most fish names are soothing - trout, salmon, blue gill. The Northern Snakehead, however, sounds scary, and the fish looks just as scary as it sounds. The DNR has announced that one of the dreaded suckers has been found in the Great Lakes (in Chicago's harbor no less). Whether this is a one-off occurance or a change in lake's ecosystem isn't known yet -- but let's hope this nasty little fish doesn't stick around.
