    Miguel Wattson, an eel living it up at the Tennessee Aquarium, has given quite the shock to visitors discovering his ability to power the lights on a nearby Christmas tree at the site.

    Joey Turnipseed, the aquarium’s audiovisual production specialist, explained in a December 3 release that Wattson is able to trigger a strobe-like tree lighting every time he’s eating or just whenever he gets excited.

    “Whenever Miguel discharges electricity, sensors in the water deliver the charge to a set of speakers,” Turnipseed said. “The speakers convert the discharge into the sound you hear and the festively flashing lights.”

    Forget Rudolf: it’s all about Miguel.
