The elusive Burnaby snakehead has been caught — on camera.

Last Friday, amateur wildlife filmmaker Bruce Causier captured the elusive fish on camera just days after provincial officials failed to find it.

Causier spent almost every sunny day since hearing about the snakehead fish looking for it. After studying previous footage of the fish, he determined that the fish was most often spotted near a stream that flows into the Lower Pond of Burnaby's Central Park's fish pond.

Sure enough, he found the fish where he thought he would — and has returned numerous times to find it swimming in the same spot.

"If it's hot out, he'll be there, slowly swimming around," Causier told the Vancouver Sun.
