The video posted on December 3, shows the electric eel swimming up and down in its glass aquarium. As the eel swims, the fully decorated Christmas tree flickers by the bio electric charge that it emits. The video also shows young children looking at Miguel with awe.

“ICYMI, here’s a video of yours truly attempting to use my discharges to power the lights on a Christmas tree. (Spoiler alert: Of course I pull it off. My phenomenal cosmic — well, bio-electric — power is basically limitless)”, reads the post’s caption.

The aquarium expects that this unique Christmas tree will increase the number of visitors and also create more awareness about this marvelous creature.
