Transsexual eels invade New Jersey

It's too bizarre to be true. Slimy, invading eels that survive drought, and can change sex if needed to reproduce.

It's the invasion of the Asian swamp eels. One more in a series of unwelcome creatures that are replacing native fish because they can.

The Asian swamp eel is a protandrous hermaphrodites. Those are big words that mean
beginning life as males but able to change into females if the need arises.
Wonder what that means, if the need arises?
