Jordan Lake. Follow up on the eel versus lamprey photos that I shared with you. The NC Wildlife Resources Commission is leaning somewhat more towards an American eel. The NC Museum of Natural Sciences scientists are more certain that it is an eel. Since none of us had the critter in hand it does leave open some questions but I wanted to share you what we knew at this point. Enjoy this video of the same great blue heron eating its eel taken with new camera!

Jordan Lake: Great blue herons enjoy the occasional meal of American eel. I wondered if this was the fledgling’s first taste of eel. #AmericanEel #Eel #GreatBlueHeron
