Who needs power when you have a tank full of electric eels, right?

Miguel Wattson, a little electric eel at the Tennessee Aquarium has a very cool party trick – he can light up an entire Christmas Tree with his own positive energy.

According to the Aquariam’s director, Thom Benson, the A/V team made a special system that uses sensors to detect the eel’s emitted electricty.

When the slippery little creature gets really excited, mostly during dinner time, the tree really lights up.

Is this science, maybe.


Is this Christmas Magic, most definitely!
