A small oceanic eel-like creature that latches onto the side of its victim and tears into them.

Sea lampreys are a species of fish found in any non-tropical body of water, excluding pools. As big as a kobold, they provide a fair amount of returns when butchered. As non-vermin fish, sea lampreys can't be fished by fisherdwarves, but can be caught with the use of a drowning chamber. Infant sea lampreys are called larval sea lampreys.

Some dwarves like sea lampreys for their suckers.

Admired for their suckers.

It also happens to have the [LARGE_PREDATOR] tag, despite being half the size of a carp.

Be afraid.
