Picture Stories #343 - Electric Eel

in #photography2 years ago (edited)

Eels are very interesting creatures; they are slithery, slimy and look a lot like snakes but I find Eels to be more fascinating than the venomous reptilians which happen to be mostly terrestrial as compared to Eels that are aquatic. They come in different sizes, but the larger ones appear the most intimidating and dangerous, and additionally the fact that these creatures are capable of producing electricity within their body is truly astounding.

As can be seen in the last picture above, there was a section near the aquarium which displayed a lot of interesting facts regarding Eels and the most shocking one (pun intended) was that Electric Eels can produce enough electricity to stun a horse and multiple shocks are even capable of killing human beings!

Thank you for reading!

Eels are fascinating creatures indeed. Although fascinating, I find them to give me an uneasy feeling, similar to rodents and certain insects.
Isn't it strange how some creatures are attractive to humans, yet certain types of rodents, insects, and various other creatures create an instinctual fight or flight response?

haha well yeah human beings are the weirdest :) i guess eels are better than insects or rodents for me in the sense i can control my exposure to them and they can't jump out on me like an insect or rodent. but i'd always prefer a cute little mammal to any other animal.

:-D well I used to have uneasy feeling when seeing alive eel but once it's deep friend, not anymore. Of course, not the electric eel one, just the regular ones.
