Electric eel

Electric eel

Growing up as a child, I had often heard about the dangerous electric eel from adults in my neighbourhood since there was the La Repentir Cemetery trench, the Sussex Street trench, the Punt Trench and the Lamaha Canal in the Sussex Street backland. I swam in the Cemetery Trench, the Sussex Street trench, the Punt Trench regularly as a kid, at Clay, the Paaloff and near Cooper Street, Albouystown and in the Lamaha Canal. I was nipped by a piranha at Clay but to my delight, I never came across an electric eel. I also swam in the Demerara, Essequibo, Berbice, Pomeroon and Ireng Rivers; Kara Kara, Catabuli, Kamuni, and Mahaicony Creeks. Never came across one.
