Knowing of our interest in all things anguilliform, Robert Schneck has sent us three classic clippings about educated eels, which prove (as if any proof were needed) that eels are very peculiar fish. This first one is from the Lubbock (TX) Evning. Jrnl-Nov 7, 1952.

ROBERT SCHNECK: Educated eels #1
We have always been interested in eels here at the CFZ, and in particular the freshwater eels of the genus Anguilla. Indeed there is a fat and rather smug specimen of A. anguilla who lives in a 48in tank in the corner of my study. Oll, with his fetish for all things Welsh, named him Eel-I Jenkins after the Vicar in Under Milk Wood and we are all rather fond of him.
