According to the recent study, the predators have a two dimensional strategy to “remotely control” their prey.
In the skirmish of electric eel versus prey, it just so happens electric eels have a considerably more noteworthy benefit than we suspected.
The study is published in the Science journal, exposing the mechanics of the eel’s electric release, indicating how the predators utilize this organic weapon to “remotely control their target.”
As per the research by Vanderbilt University’s Kenneth Catania, when an eel is seeking after a fish and doesn’t need it to escape it can emanate an electric charge from its organs that shocks its victim. The stretched fish utilizes “high-recurrence volleys to actuate immobilizing entire body muscle contraction.”
Furthermore, when an eel is searching for prey and can’t find any, it utilizes an alternate strategy: the eel discharges power in 2 or 3 bunches, which eventually causes close-by fish to jerk, uncovering their concealing spot.
It’s an electric eel’s reality and little fish are simply living in it.
