SOUND AND LIGHT DISPLAY ON CHRISTMAS TREE CHANGING AND ELECTRIC EEL MIGUEL WATTSON SWIMMING IN TANK STORY: An electric eel named Miguel Wattson made spirits bright at the Tennessee Aquarium with its electrical discharges reflected in a Christmas tree light display, as shown in a video taken in Chattanooga, Tennessee on December 2.

Although the eel does not power the lights, sensors placed in the water detect the duration and intensity of his electrical discharges and translate them into the light and sound display, Tennessee Aquarium told Reuters in an email.
