1 If you find snakes creepy, you can probably say the same about eels. To a certain extent, the two animals look and behave alike. For example, they both have long bodies. And they both are very good hunters. But in the case of eels, there are quite a few imposters that get mixed in with the real ones. The most famous example is perhaps the electric eel.
