    Asian carp. Extremely large and aggressive, feared to enter the Great Lakes almost any day now and expected to wipe out every other species once they do.

    Cane roads. Poisonous, weighing as much as 5 lbs. Extremely prolific breeders, moving rapidly up the Florida peninsula.

    When Australia took a hard line stance on Johnny Depp for trying to smuggle in his dogs, I was 100% on Australia's side. The introduction of rabbits alone nearly denuded huge swathes of that country.

    Roy Moore and Donald Trump are both scummy snakes, but likening them to invasive species is a little harsh.

    They are both noxious but native.

    These critters are now a well established invasive specie.

    Was it necessary to make such an ugly remark on this thread?

    Possibly the creepiest invasive species is the nutria. 12+ pound rats that thrive in marshes and wetlands, and destroy them.

    They wrecked a lot of havoc in Louisiana after Katrina.

    The whole thread was a set up desperately in need of a punch line. Please forgive me.
    Did you like the fake latin specie name, a la "roadrunner"?
