Video: Alligator Killed by Electric Eel

It was a true rumble in the jungle when a caiman (member of the crocodile family) took on an electric eel in the Amazon backcountry of South America.

The result of the conflict is shocking!

The video was first posted on to YouTube back in 2009 but has recently gone viral with over 500,000 viewers tuning in to watch what, at first, appears to be a lopsided conflict. The caiman pounces onto the eel with the intention of grabbing an easy meal. Up to 600 volts later, the caiman went to that big swamp in the sky.

The eel succumbed to its injuries a short time afterward.
