    When eel fish senses danger, it turns itself in to a living battery, Any one who attacks this fish is likely to get a shock. The potential differnece between head and tail of of an electric eel can be up to 600V. My question is what is mechanism inside eel fish due to wich it creates shuch a huge P.D between its head and tail. Any one who can answer it.
