Description

A long, snakelike creature moves slowly through the waters of a muddy river in the Amazon rain forest. It's an electric eel on the hunt. The hungry creature swims closer to a large piranha. As it nears its prey, the predatory eel releases a burst of electricity. Six hundred volts of power enter the fish's body, stunning the animal so the hungry eel can gobble up its electrifying meal! Filled with information perfectly suited to the abilities and interests of its primarygrade audience, this colorful, fact-filled book gives readers a chance to learn about the lives of apex predators that can produce electricity inside their bodies. The book will also help readers develop their powers of observation and challenge them with activities and critical-thinking questions about the electric eel's physical characteristics, its everyday life, and its hunting skills.
