A 95 cm cobra snakehead caught by top fishing Guide Jean Francois Helias (www.anglingthailand.com)
The Cobra Snakehead has dark eyes, a dipped snakelike head with jutting bottom jaw and is brown/gold-tinted to pale gray to dark brown with large black blotches. It has a distinctive marking which is the black spot rimmed with orange near the base of the tail fin, known as an eyespot or ocellus. (Channa marulius) has become one of the most studied of the snakehead family mainly because it has been found inhabiting canals in Florida where it is considered vermin because it is not a native species.
