Dolphin filmed leaping out of the water while trying to shake off a lamprey parasite

Mike Langman, 58, was walking with his wife, Tanya, when he spotted a pod of dolphins and quickly grabbed his camera. They began leaping from the water and Mike noticed one of them looked odd and had something trailing from its side. And after Mike zoomed in on the picture he realised it was a lamprey, an ancient parasite, attached to the side of one of them in the sea off the coast of Torquay, Devon. This video was shot on the 7th January 2021.
