Scientists found a new electric eel in the Amazon. It can give us an 860-volt electric shock. This is eight times stronger than the 110 volts of electricity used in U.S. homes. The eel is 2.4 meters long and weighs 45kgs. The scientists said the eel is "the strongest living bio-electricity generator".

Scientists found two new kinds of eel. The 860-volt eel is in the news because of its shocking power. Scientists thought there was only one electric eel in the world. A researcher said there are many more kinds of animals in the world that we don't know are there. He said there could be many unknown animals in the Amazon.
