Electric eel lights up Christmas tree

Recommended Posts

"Visitors to the Tennessee Aquarium may be shocked to learn that an electric eel named Miguel Wattson is lighting up a Christmas tree.

"A special system connected to Miguel’s tank enables his shocks to power strands of lights on a nearby tree, according to a news release.

"Miguel releases low-voltage blips of electricity when he is trying to find food, aquarist Kimberly Hurt said. That translates to a rapid, dim blinking of the Christmas lights. When he is eating or excited he emits higher-voltage shocks, which cause bigger flashes."
