Rumble / Unreal AnimalsWe usually show you some fun and cute videos from cute little animals, but today we have prepared something really unusual and something that you don’t see every day. Now and then we like to show you some exciting and cool videos that you have never seen before.

Just like this shocking video of some eels leaping out from the water to get some food! Take a look at this video and tell us what you think of it! Like it or not? These eels may look unattractive, but in fact, they are charming creatures. Check it out as they come out of the water to feed. They are filmed in New Zealand.

Many people are frightened of eels because they look and move like snakes. Eels are not snakes – they are actually fish and live in holes or caves.
This eel-like fish feeds on crustaceans, sea urchins, mussels, clams, and some fishes, crushing them with its strong jaws.

However, we feel like we should warn people that eels can also be dangerous. They know how to leap out of the water if they want to attack, so be careful if you are around them.

An eel is any ray-finned fish belonging to the order Anguilliformes, which consists of four suborders, 20 families, 111 genera, and about 800 species. Eels undergo considerable development from the early larval stage to the final adult stage, and most are predators.

The Eel is a snake-looking freshwater fish. A group of strange fish called lampreys look alike but have enormous sucker-like mouths and no inner fins. Eels change in color above, from silver to olive-green, and have yellow stomachs. They can live from 15 up to 70 years.

However, some people had really interesting encounters with these strange looking fish. For instance, this diver has extreme close encounter with giant moray eels and this video is truly unique.

This diver demonstrates that, although risky, coming face to face with two Moray Eels doesn’t result in a savage attack. They are curious animals that have poor eyesight. They rely on their sense of smell to locate fish and octopus, their primary food sources.

They have no desire to attack a diver unless they feel threatened. They emerge from their lair to see if there is food available, and one of them seems interested in smelling the camera that records this video! What do you think of these videos?
