I noticed some rocks in the stream have been grazed clean in short little stripes so I stuck on a mask and had a look around and caught 2 of these little guys. They are quite friendly and immediately latch on to your skin and you can feel their teeth as they get a grip on you. I didnt notice any dorsal fin and the skin is slippery smooth...so making an ID in Skeltons book is turning out difficult in this case. Does anyone have an idea? Thanks!!

It has teeth and it grazes sections of rock clean...plus I found one climbing up rocks against falling water in the rapids under a little waterfall.... Is there a way i can post a video on here?

Def a tadpole! Not too sure which species of frog it belongs to, obviously one that breeds in fast flowing streams hence the need to adapt to sucking onto rocks and so avoid being washed down river! Very cool though!
