Electric eels can supercharge their attacks by working together

Stunning new video footage captures electric eels in the Amazon hunting in groups of more than 100. Deadly packs then splinter off to collectively deliver a supercharged jolt that blasts fish out of the water, a new study finds. 

This is the first time such group hunting has been seen in Volta’s electric eels (Electrophorus voltai), a type of knifefish already known for individually producing the strongest electric shock of any animal.
