What a great little alien you've got there.
Yuck. Stay away from that thing. Great shot. Great find.
Tongue, that is!
Fascinating! A nightmarish mouth and tougue.
WOW! 2.5 feet long? That thing is beyond scarry. Great picture.
Es fascinante y asqueroso! Great shot!!!
OMG!!! This is totally creepy! But, what a great image.
Every time I see this I get the chills! Ewwwwwwwwww - awesome shot tho!
Never going in the water again.
Nice, deeply disturbing shot. Thanks, I think.
Killer shot - pun intended. Used to see the tell tale signs of lamprey all the time on the Connecticut River (W.Spfld). Grew up on the river but never had the occasion to see one from this perspective. One of the stranger inhabitants of the north.
Eeeeeeeeewwwwwwwwwww . . . and WOW!
Scarey but awesome
Brilliant and horrible. They hate us for no reason. Help!
This lamprey was about 2.5 feet long. They are similar to salmon in their reproductive stage of their lives. They live most of their life in the sea, and come back to the river they were born in to mate. They do not eat during this time, and perish in the river.
Love it! How big is this thing?
Oh man, this just kills me. Won't sleep well tonight after seeing this one. Put a leash on that thing!
This is the first Lamprey I've seen, but it was just in the shallow water by some rocks.
This part of the Millers River is in Orange, Massachusetts.
