About

The electric eel resembles a snake averaging about 6.5 feet long and weighing around 40-50 lbs. Its body is grayish-brown and lightens near the head. Small yellow splotches can be seen near the mouth. The electric eel is slimy to the touch and has no scales (the electric eel is not a true eel, but a fish).
