Guess that takes some of the pressure (no pun intended) off gerbils..

there are two main types of eel found in New Zealand - the shortfin and the longfin.

Hopefully for the guys sake it was the shortfin . :w00t:

The article states these eels hunt by smell rather than sight...  
Maybe the poor 'unnamed individual' just went for a swim, farted at the wrong time, and the eel thought...   "ohhh - dinner".  
Hey, it could happen!!!

Hmmmmmmm.... Interesting!

Maybe he stuck the eel up there to kill the gerbil.
Just sayin

I don't know much about eels, but surely they don't typically enter tight crevasses??

I can just imagine that eel's thoughts....... Man is it ever tight in here!... *squirm, grunt*... but I'm sure... if I... *grunt* just manage a little farther... *grunt*.... this tunnel will open up and I can breathe again!

'A phantom,' said my Uncle Mycroft, who had just materialised, 'is essentially a heteromorphic wave pattern that gains solidity when the apparition converts thermal energy from the surroundings to visible light. It's a fascinating process and I'm amazed no one has thought of harnessing it - a holographic TV that could operate from the heat given off by an average-size guinea pig.' ~ First Among Sequels, Jasper Fforde

The eel is now on anti depressants and has commented that he is not sure how he ended up with a human on his head.  Film at eleven...

actually I am not sure that I WANT to know how the incident happened and how the eel got to where it was. I am sure it was very traumatic for the poor thing.

I missed the news report (lol) but I am not surprised he did not want to be identified.

I bet the emergency staff are still laughing hysterically about this incident.  I feel sorry for the poor eel.

More from the article...
"Eels migrate up streams as elvers to find suitable adult habitat."...  
Well, the eel sure did find an 'Adult Habitat'

And how about..  "Eels are secretive, nocturnal and prefer habitats with plenty of cover."  
Let's see...  Rectums:
Secretive?  *TICK*,  
Nocturnal? (Well, it sure is dark) *TICK*
Plenty of cover? *TICK*

So rectums really do tick all the boxes for eels, don't they?
I'm surprised they don't have to remove more of the little 'buggars' :blush:

Hmmmmmmm.... Interesting!

If it was an electric eel I'm sure he was charged. :D

Eels do this to sheep. They eat the sheep's insides this way.

When a sheep is in the water, the eel makes its entrance.

In this light, the eel was probably looking for a meal and mistook the man for a sheep.

Easy thing to do...  mistake the man for a sheep...  I mean, it was in New Zealand.

Hmmmmmmm.... Interesting!
