    Pacific Lamprey on Display at MK Nature Center

    Just in time for Halloween, five Pacific Lamprey arrived at the MK Nature Center from the Nez Perce Fisheries Program.

    Yes, they do suck blood! But they do so only while in the ocean.  These Lamprey will be overwintering at the Nature Center, and like all Lamprey, are done eating after leaving the ocean.
