Can Electric Eels Kill You?
Found in the Amazon rivers, instead of biting or stinging their prey, these creatures release up to 850 volts of pure electricity. This is the electric eel. What would happen if you encountered one? Or how about a pool full of them? How can a fish shock somebody? What can its shock do to your body? And has something like this happened before?
Electric eels are probably the most feared freshwater animals since they’ve got the incredible capability to generate electrical shock through their body’s cells, which can potentially overwhelm stronger creatures and even humans.
