Why We Don't Swim in New Jersey Rivers

By jlitch
This is what swims in the Raritan River in New Jersey.

Read all about it in the comments at Reddit, where it was first posted, and at Gawker, which freaked out about it. It was caught by arrow-fisher Doug Cutler.

UPDATE: The NY Daily News says scientists at Outdoor magazine seem to think the creature is a very large sea lamprey, a species of parasite that lives in certain northern Atlantic waters.
