This Is the Reason Why You Should Stay Far Away as You Can From Electric Eels

We all know that water and electricity don’t go well together, which is the sole reason why you should stay the hell away from electric eels.

These bastards can deliver an electric shock of up to 860 volts on one ampere of current at short bursts. While this is unlikely to be fatal for us humans, it still packs a punch.

In this short clip produced by Vanderbilt University, electric eel expert Kenneth Catania shows us never before seen footage their behavior in a series of experiments.

He used prosthetics fitted with LEDs that light up whenever the eel discharges electricity in an aggressive manner.
