Can you identify these invasive species? Challenge #2 T. Trimpe 2008
I am brown and found in trees. I feed on native birds and lizards. How many of these invaders can you identify? I am found in the Southeastern US and can attack and cause painful burning stings on humans, animals, & livestock. I dont taste like garlic or mustard, but like to crowd out native species and take over! I like to go wild and pig out on native plants and crops causing much damage. I may have stripes like a zebra, but I live in water and compete with native mussels for food. I may look like a snake, but Im a fish that preys on native species. Im also found in more places than just the northern states.
The answers are … Garlic Mustard Brown Tree Snake Red Fire Ant Wild Boar Zebra Mussel Northern Snake Head
