    Wild Snakehead And Fry - Thailand

    Post by bettawan on Sat 24 Sep 2011, 04:44

    Hi All,

    There's a beck/stream that runs down the side of our home, most of the year it's dry, it's a runoff for when the village lake floods, but after the floods and the water subsides theres usually small pools left, which eventually dry up. I managed to capture a few photos of a snakehead and it's frys...

    You can see the Snakehead below the white bag and it's fry above the white bag..there where hundreds of them, a beautiful red/orange in colour.



    Here the Snakehead is to the left of the bag with the fry to the left of the Snakehead.



    Where ever the fry went the Snakehead was not far behind, if any other fish came near the Snakehead would chase them away...here the Snakehead is surrounded by it's fry.



    Here the Snakehead is to the left of the bag once again and it's fry above it.



    I asked Wan what would happen to the Snakehead once the pool dried up and she reckons it's digs an hole in the mud and burys itself until the next rains come...or they will slither across the fields bit like snakes until they find a new lake/stream...this year though we had more rain just before the pool dried up and the beck/stream filled up again and I never seen the snakehead and fry again...so I imagine the snakehead and its fry ended up further down stream in a bigger pond somewhere.

    We are having real problems other here at the moment with floods and everywhere you go there are snakeheads....our local town is underwater and thai's are putting nets up where the roads used to be and are catching the snakeheads to sell at the local market as food.

    Sorry too hear about the floods but that's fantastic news that it makes a food source more accessible and abundant!
