Channa burmanica is an endemic species of snakehead from northern Burma. It is a very small species of snakehead included in the informal group of dwarf snakeheads. Its colouring closely resembles that of Channa gachua and Channa bleheri. It is very rarely found in pet shops. It is also considered to be a mouthbrooder species, though no successful breeding has yet occurred.
