"The electric eels are insidious pests that have taken root in the oases surrounding Caldeum. Known for their stinging strikes, these creatures are particularly dangerous when they attack in large numbers. It is said that raw eel has become a delicacy among Caldeum's elite, but I assure you these rumors are baseless."

Electric Eels are a variant of Corpse Worms found in Act II in Diablo III. They are mostly encountered in the sewers and the ancient tunnels, although some can be found in Dahlgur Oasis.
