Snakehead (toman) can be found in Asia: Pakistan to China, south to Thailand and Cambodia; Mekong and Chao Phraya basins, Laos, the Malay Peninsula and the islands of Sumatra and Borneo. They have also been introduced and estaablished in many areas (including south Florida). They prefer sluggish or standing water or deep pools in rivers or canals, water that low in oxygen. Large snakeheads are solitary fish, which inhabit waters with submerged aquatic vegetation. The snakeheads have developed means of coping with hypoxic (low oxygen) waters they occupy; they actually breath air through a suprabranchial organ.
