Dave & Chuck the Freak

This sounds like something out of “The Little Mermaid”, except more festive.  The Chattanooga, Tennessee Aquarium has an electric eel that can power lights on a Christmas tree.  They call him “Miguel Wattson” and he has his own Twitter page.

Here’s how it works.  The aquarium hooked up a special system to Miguel’s tank to pick up his charges.  He releases low-voltage blips of electricity when he’s trying to find food.

People outside the tank can HEAR some of those charges, and then SEE the lights on a nearby tree flicker and flash.
