Can Electric Eels Really Create Electricity?
Have you ever wondered if electric eels can really produce electricity?
The answer is yes, they do. An electric eel uses chemicals in its body to manufacture electricity. A large electric eel can produce a charge of up to 650 volts, which is more than five times the shocking power of a household outlet.
Electricity produced by eels, however, would be a very inefficient way to power our lives, so don’t expect to see them included in our power mix anytime soon.
