VIDEO: Pacific lamprey harvested at Willamette Falls

Added on by Thomas Boyd.

It'€™s time for the annual Pacific lamprey harvest at Willamette Falls. Lampreys are unusual-looking creatures: round like snakes, but with smooth skin and fins. Their mouth is a parasitic suction cup with concentric rings of teeth that look more like something out of Star Wars than nature. The Oregonian story by Ian Campbell.
