305: When Eels Attack

Electric eels zap fish and other underwater prey, but what would make them leap out of the water and shock a land animal like a horse? Kenneth Catania of Vanderbilt University is researching this curious behavior first described by a nineteenth century naturalist and explorer. Science Friday’s Luke Groskin takes us inside the lab where Catania uses unconventional props to decode eel behavior.
