The Maryland Department of Natural Resources Inland Fisheries (DNR) is offering $200 gift cards to Bass Pro Shops to residents who capture and kill a snakehead, an invasive species from Africa that is upsetting the natural order of the local ecosystem. Here is a look at other creepy creatures that troll the waters.

slide1

In this undated handout photo from the U.S. Department of Agriculture, a northern snakehead fish is held. The northern snakehead, dubbed "Frankenfish", is an invasive species from Asia that threatens North American ecosystems. The fish is highly predatory and some species have the ability to breathe air while crossing land to new bodies of water. The snakehead has been found in parts of Maryland as well as in Lake Michigan. (Photo by the SDA via Getty Images)

Snakehead fish move along the ground using their fins at a fish farm in\nSingapore July 27, 2002. Popular in parts of Asia for its medicinal\nbenefits, the aggressive fish - which has a voracious appetite and can\nlive out of water for days - has become a threat in parts of the United\nStates, where its unintended introduction has led to the destruction of\nlocal fish.

In this photo released by Tsunemi Kubodera, a researcher with Japan's National Science Museum, a giant squid attacking a bait squid is being pulled up by his research team off the Ogasawara Islands, south of Tokyo, on Dec. 4, 2006. The research team, led by Kubodera, has succeeded in filming the giant squid live, possibly for the first time, at the surface as they captured it off the remote island of Chichijima, which is about 960 kilometers (600 miles) southeast of Tokyo. About seven meters (24 feet) long squid died in the process of being caught. The photo was made out of the video they filmed. (AP Photo/Tsunemi Kubodera of the National Science Museum of Japan, HO)

This undated image provided by seaphotos.com shows the face of a Histiophryne psychedelica, a highly atypical a psychedelic frogfish (Antennaridae) first described in 2009 from a handful of specimens photographed in Ambon, Indonesia in 2008. It has a vestigial, non-functional lure (illicium/esca) and probably traps its prey inside coral holes and crevices or within coral rubble. The unusual pattern is thought to mimic the appearance of several kinds of hermatypic coral, and while varying slightly from individual to individual, appears to remain unchanged throughout the life of each individual.

In this handout picture released by Awashima Marine Park, a 1.6 meter long Frill shark swims in a tank after being found by a fisherman at a bay in Numazu, on January 21, 2007 in Numazu, Japan. The frill shark, also known as a Frilled shark usually lives in waters of a depth of 600 meters and so it is very rare that this shark is found alive at sea-level. It's body shape and the number of gill are similar to fossils of sharks which lived 350,000,000 years ago. (Photo by Awashima Marine Park/Getty Images)

Norwegian scientists who explored the deep waters of the Atlantic Ocean said Thursday Aug. 5, 2004 their findings, including what appear to be new species of fish and squid, could be used to protect marine ecosystems worldwide. Researchers on the MAR-ECO expedition, which spent two months mapping the undersea ecosystem around the Mid-Atlantic Ridge, the world's largest mountain range, said they found an unexpected diversity of marine life near the sea bottom. "Overall, we've been struck by the diversity of life," said Odd Aksel Bergstad, the expedition's leader and a senior scientist at the Institute of Marine Research in Norway. Seen here a specimen captured during the Mar-ECO cruise of the ceratioid angler fish of the genus Lophodolus that may be a new species. The fish differed from two known species in the genus by the structure of the head and the form of the "lure" at the tip of the luring apparatus. (AP Photo/Tracey Sutton/Mar-ECO Expedition)

In this undated photo provided by arthowardphotography.com, a squat lobster is seen among corals more than 1,000 feet down in the Atlantic Ocean off the coast of southeastern United States. Scientists are studying the deep water reefs in a 23,000 square mile region stretching from North Carolina to Florida that has been proposed for protection from fishing and other endeavors that could damage the ecosystem, such as energy and oil exploration.

Staff of department of Fish Studies at the National Museum of Kenya display November 19, 2001 a Coelacanth fish caught by Kenyan fishermen at the coastal town of Malindi in April this year. There are few species of this deep sea fish which was thought to have vanished with the dinosaurs 65 milllion years ago. This particular strain, explained the scientists gives birth to young fish as opposed to laying eggs. (George Mulala / Reuters)
