A young caiman (close kin to gators and crocs) stumbled across an electric eel.

It chomped down.

The eel zapped him.

Which one won out?

You’ll have to watch and see for yourself.

The first part of the video describes how the eel uses the electrical charge. The later part shows the confrontation.

Enjoy!
