Electric eel lights up Christmas

The Japanese have found a unique way to light up a Christmas tree. Reuters reports of a new Christmas installation is taking centre stage at a Japanese aquarium involving an electric eel and Christmas tree lights.

The electric eel discharges up to 800 watts of power and every time the creature moves it lights up the Christmas tree.

The eel and the tree has been a crowd puller, with hundreds coming to watch the eel move and the lights twinkle.
