they do but their line of sight is different. they are looking up at a branch, the eel, presumably, would be looking up at the underside of the dock. look where the dog is standing and where the eel is coming out from. that dog is tiny, there's no way the eel would see it.

of course, there are stories of octopus that leave their tank, walk across a room, enter another tank, eat some fish and then head home so, perhaps I am clueless.

thought I'd add that at the 0:13 mark, the eel has grabbed the dog and the woman turns back to see what the hell just happened. her left hand is holding something that resembles a portion of leash. take a look and you'll see what I'm talking about.

Is this a scene from Razortooth? I haven't seen the movie but it looks an awfully lot like the stuff that happens in the trailer.

Since when do eels jump out of the water to catch their prey. I used to catch and eat them everyday. I never seen an eel jump out of water for any reason.


Here they do

Eels are fantastic animals! I have seem some big ones but the video just looks fake.

That's not jumping. That's squirming.

Clearly fake, the eel doesn't move naturally. The whole reaction looks unnatural, hell, the flicker is also made on purpose.

Definitely Hoax.

obviously fake, but I did have a laugh. Especially when the dog gets eaten by the eel. then the ell just goes ape. but a little obvious its a bad cgi.

Badly done CGI, compositing was rough and color balance on the mid tones was off, the tracking seemed a bit lost ina few places, the animation was done using default linear curve set up and not eased in or out at all.

Its sort of student / fan film quality, but no where near good enough to fool anyone... put it this way if that does fool people then we may as well all give up now. Rough as a donkeys backside.

..and no I dont see why I should be nice about fakes.

Man that is so real.

That is so real they had to add CGI to make it look fake.
Whenever you see a real giant eel, you can bet the MSM will try and make it look fake.
They do it all the Time.

I remember when New York was attacked by a massive Dinosuar reptile thing, they tried to make all the footage look like it was a remake of that Japanese Movie thing, godsilly (or something?).

What a find, you watch, Japenese whalers will be swarming all over that place soon, Unagi ain't cheap and that eel is a bento box full of gold.

Wow phage thanks for that. I've never seen or heard of the archer fish before. Really cool stuffs. I guess it is true, you do learn something new every day!

Although I agree with the fact that it is CGI saying that the animal is too fast is really kind of ridiculous. You've obviously never seen how fast some animals really are. My tarantula would blow your mind with it's speed and agility! Even though it is not an EEL.

This is a time lapse (sort of) of eels getting their land legs.



This one is just.. Wow.. Seriously cool!

That one kind of reminds me of that scene from prince's bride.

and of course attacking



An electric eel powering a X-Mas Tree... Just because..



I do agree that it is CGI tho, but contributed anyway. Based on the movements of the eels in video #2 there is no way said eel could have risen out of the water and attacked like it did. Gravity would have obviously played more of a part.

How thick are you people! It's clearly cgi. I only had to watch it once to know that.

For the sake of helping those that are visually impaired:

1. The eel moves like it's made of rubber and lacks weight - a tell tale sign that it's cgi.

2. The way it interacts with the water is not realistic ie the way the water "splashes" as it thrashes about isn't consistent with the body weight of something this large.

3. Do I really need to give you a third reason?

I suppose you think Cloverfield is real footage of a monster as well? Lol

Open your eyes!

There is no way that Eel is fake, it is being faked to make it look fake so you will watch it, and think it is fake. Clearly this technique has worked on you!

They did the same in Cloverfield.

Are you a dis-info agent?

Th more I think of it, I actually believe you entire post is CGI. In fact it is.

Hi StevesResearch!

I don't think anyone has replied actually believing that this is real footage.

Hi Just_Julie,

Yeah I know, but the fact the op went through the video frame by frame and had to question it's authenticity has me a little concerned. This video doesn't deserve the scrutiny it's received.

I wish people would post more convincing videos before starting threads like this.

Cheers

How can anyone possibly think that this is legit?

It is so obviously fake on numerous levels that I don't even care to enumerate, boo OP!
