Even in the middle of the night, when I’m tracking the blood sign of a deer through thorns and scrub harboring black bears and coyotes and perhaps the odd mountain lion, I believe that. I know I’m the most dangerous thing in the forest and, because of that, I’m not afraid. I go forth in the woods with courage and resolve. Here, in the water, my courage and resolve are muted.

We could usually stalk to within twenty yards of a spiny-tail before it bolted. The critters spooked much less easily in the early days of George’s work. Also, hunting iguanas in a densely built-up area

“Frankenfish.” The species was bizarre to them because of its apparent lack of predators, sharp teeth, and its ability to survive for long periods on dry land. Some species of snakehead can grow to more than three feet long. The public’s imagination quickly processed this information and imagined an enormous fish that would squirm out of the water, crawl over the ground, and kill pets or even human beings.
