- There are 800 species of eels
- Female eels lay 4 million eggs.
- Eels from Europe and America swim to the same sea so it is possible that American and European eels could be related.
- Eels are somewhat mysterious and not that much is actually known about them.
- Eels live in fresh water until they become adults and then they swim to salt water and ultimately the Sargasso Sea.
- They are considered a food delicacy by some (even the larva, known as glass eels).
