Summary
Shows how the electric eel generates electricity and uses its radar method of finding food.  Demonstrates the methods of movement of an electric eel in an aquarium and uses a model to explain how the eel may produce and discharge over 500 volts of electricity. Employs charts to illustrate the three main divisions of the eel's body and demonstrates through an experiment the location of the eel's radar receivers. Suggests that knowledge of the electric eel's capabilities results in a "new understanding of God who made us all."
