  • AMAZON’S ELECTRIC FISH

DESCRIPTION

The Amazon is one of the wildest and least explored parts of the planet. It has the highest diversity of life on the planet, but what lies below it is truly shocking. In its deep muddy rivers, clear streams and expansive floodplains, a freak-show of fish life has exploded, with some of the strangest shapes and weirdest adaptations on Earth. Hiding in the vast rivers and streams is an electric grid-- a bizarre community of fish with a highly sophisticated electric sixth sense. Using electricity, these “Super” fish can communicate wirelessly, control each other remotely and emit shocks that can stop a human heart.
