I (Geoff)  did a one day dive trip out to Catalina yesterday. Warm water (for CA), decent visibility, and saw some cool stuff. 3 tanks in water from about 25 feet to about 65 feet deep. Nice bunch of people on the boat.

Apparent;y the reason this guy wasn't afraid is that they can shock the crap out of you.  Enough to knock you unconcious. Pacific Electric Eel.  Scale is hard to tell in the picture, but he was probably 2 feet across the flat part.  Pretty good size.
