I couldn't tell if this lamprey was trying to make a place to lay it's eggs, or if it was in the process of dying. It just stayed right there near the bank of the river. Skinners Falls NYDEC access on the Upper Delaware Scenic & Recreational River.

Description from Wikipedia

Lampreys (sometimes also called lamprey eels) are an order of jawless fish, the adult of which is characterized by a toothed, funnel-like sucking mouth. The common name "lamprey" is derived from lampetra, which translated from Latin means "stone licker" (lambere "to lick" + Greek πέτρα "stone").
