“It is remarkable for an electric battery situated between the pectorals and head and gills; this is indicated by two elevations extending along the back, and consists of numerous cells formed like honeycomb, this being, as is the similar provision of the Gymnotus or electric eel, amply supplied with nerves. On being touched the animal imparts a severe electric shock, sufficient to stun its prey.” — Goodrich, 1859
