Description

Electric eels zap fish and other underwater prey, but what would make them leap out of the water and shock an animal like a horse? Nineteenth-century naturalist and explorer Alexander von Humboldt first described eels emerging from the water to attack horses, and now Kenneth Catania of Vanderbilt University uses some unique props to reveal shocking insights about the behavior.
