Eels can actually kill each other while fighting with electric shock, so they aren’t resistant to all electric shock. However, when eels mate, they let off similar if not identical shocks. This is baffling to scientists because there is no obvious difference between the shocks eels use to inflict harm versus those let off during mating, and why mating shocks don’t damage the eels.
One of the reasons eels don’t shock themselves is that their prey tends to be smaller then them, and therefore more vulnerable to the electric charge than the eel is. So the eel is probably still affected by electricity, just not as much as the prey is.
