Giant Eels

Published
MBiche Village, Solomon Islands: Zeb Hogan standing by a pond filled with giant mottled eels. The eel's feeding mechanisms resemble that of another top predator, the crocodile. Like their reptilian counterparts, eels are classic ambush predators.

Check your local listings.

Zeb goes in search of the giant eel- a massive, flesh-eating, wall-climbing, air-absorbing, snakelike fish that can attack like a crocodile and live upwards of 100 years.
