Gross Find Of The Day: Sea Lamprey

Can you say disgusting? You may want to think twice before taking a dip anywhere except a pool cause you never know what specimens may be floating around. Nestled in a New Jersey river, this cuddly friend was caught on a bow fishing trip.

For those of you that have no idea what a sea lamprey is, let me break it done for you. A lamprey is an eel-like parasite  that feeds off of fish.  Its sucker mouth and sharp teeth  attach itself to the body of a fish and suck its blood. Kind of sounds like that stalker ex-boyfriend that just wont leave you alone, amirite ladies?

The lamprey kind of looks like the chestbursters from Alien. Sorry. We’re not sorry.
