But does anybody really know if any kind of eel gives off an electric charge if touched? The moray eel is probably the most feared out of the Anguilliformes family because they are very aggressive and incredibly dangerous. But that’s not all; these eels are fish without scales on any part of their body, and they have a thick snake like body that slivers and all. The moray eel have very different and colorful skins, in fact no two moray eels look the same. They are born with tattooed, freckled, stripped and speckled markings, and they also have different colors as well like; off white, black, chocolate brown, scarlet blue, black and sandy yellow. These eels are also very different when it comes to there size. Some are smaller or larger than others and they also have huge sized heads. There are two types of moray eel the ribbon moray and the giant moray. They have dark soulless eyes and sharp spiked looking teeth. So, are eels electric? The answer is yes but not all and certainly not the moray eel. This tutorial will show you ""how to draw a eel, step by step". The instructions are simple and the steps are easy to understand.
