A full-grown electric eel can generate about 600 volts of electricity.
If you were to encounter a shock from an electric eel, would it kill you? Although there are few documented instances of people dying from an electric eel’s shock, it could happen. A single jolt could incapacitate a person long enough to cause him or her to drown, even in shallow water. Multiple shocks could cause a person to stop breathing or go into heart failure.
