from The Century Dictionary and Cyclopedia
- n. A lamprey.
Sorry, no etymologies found.
Having a little lamprey-eel toro toro in his cage is a bit different than jumping onto the back of a giant red dragon from your medium-size green dragon, or making love in a glowing garden, but with these thoughts in mind, did I think "the vision of Avatar is something we'll see in the future?"
a true parasite among the vertebrates is the lamprey-eel (Fig. 1) which attaches itself to the body of a fish and sucks the blood or eats the flesh.
