Top 5 Weirdest River Fish Ever Caught #2

Lamprey
This was in Lake Champlain, on the border between Vermont and New York. It’s a very primitive fish — there is question as to whether it’s even really a fish, as it has no backbone and no jaws, just a sucker with teeth in it. In the middle of the sucker is a tongue, and the tongue’s got teeth on it as well. The way they normally operate is to bore into the skin of other fish and drink the bodily fluids.   More pics on the next page.
