I've never really seen one of these. Are they usually that friendly? Wonder what size tank that is in?

I don't think so, Jakie - this one has been nurtured by a very caring owner for many years. I *think* I saw posted that Mr.Eel was 7.5 years old when this video was filmed! I was wondering the tank size, too. I'll have to scroll through the comments. Perhaps he has it listed.

Either way - GORGEOUS animal, and I just adore the interaction. . . all around lovely!

*nods* I saw a video posted of this same eel at 6 months old, he was so small - and not *quite* hand-feeding just yet. CUTE! :) I'm sure his owner put a lot of time into nurturing this 'relationship.' That's dedication!

Fish like this need to be hand reared as juveniles and it takes a lot of patience and time. You need the animal to absolutely trust and get used to you.
