Visitors to Tennessee Aquarium’s Rivers of the World exhibit were treated to an eel-ectrifying Christmas experience recently, as footage shared by the aquarium on December 2 shows.

The aquarium wowed guests with a very special Christmas tree, powered by its resident electric eel Miguel Wattson.

According to the aquarium, the intensity of the lights reflects the strength of Miguel’s electric discharges as detected by sensors in his tank.

“The rapid, dim blinking of the lights is caused by the constant, low-voltage blips of electricity he releases when he’s trying to find food,” aquarist Kimberly Hurt said in a news release.

“The bigger flashes are caused by the higher voltage shocks he emits when he’s eating or excited.”
