Christmas Tree Powered Up By An Electric Eel

When I first came across this idea I found it a bit weird, but I then realized the guy who came up with this idea is really intelligent. I say intelligent because he has managed to use the electric power generated by an eel to light a Christmas tree.

An Eel is capable of generating electric shocks which it uses for its self defense and for killing its prey. So how does the eel’s power really work in this tree? It’s really simple. The Eel is placed in an aquarium which has copper wires in it. When then eel touches those wires it sends electricity through them to the Christmas tree. If you want to have a close look at this eco friendly Christmas tree then make your travel plans this Christmas to visit the Aqua Toto Gifu in Japan.
