Top definition
A animal like a snake that stalks its prey and eats it.
It usually goes for humans and you could be in great risk swimming in its territory.
HOW TO AVOID IT
Don't go near any crabs on the beach as crabs attract them.
Eels are also what you see in the fish tank at a Chinese restaurant
Guy 1: I'm going swimming today i hope an eel doesn't get me.
Guy 2: Bring a Chinese flag with you and you'll be fine

A song created by the most brill band ever! As seen in season three in the episode EELS on the BBC3
Eels up inside ya
Findin an entrance where they can
Eels up inside ya
Findin an entrance where they can

Boring through your mind, through your tummy, through your anus, eels!

Eels!

Eels (x14)

Give it up now!

Eels!

Eels, eels, give it up now!
Eels, eels, give it up now!

I was obselete
I couldn't hear the beat
Staggerin about on me old mans feet
I had one foot in the grave
But now I'm nu rave!
But now I'm nu rave!

It's a mash up!
Pie and mash up!

Elements of the past
And elements of the future
Comin atcha
I'm the hitcher
Let me put you in the picture!

Eels up inside ya
Findin an entrance where they can
Eels up inside ya
Findin an entrance where they can

Elements of the past and the future combining to make something not quite as good as either...

Eel(s): True eels are of the order Anguilliformes, which consists of 4 suborders, 19 families, 110 genera and 400 species. Most eels are predators.

The flat and transparent larva of the eel is called a leptocephalus. A young eel is called an elver.

Most eels prefer to dwell in shallow waters or hide at the bottom layer of the ocean, sometimes in holes. Only the Anguillidae family comes to fresh water to dwell there (not to breed). Some eels dwell in deep water (in case of family Synaphobranchidae, this comes to a depth of 4,000 m), or are active swimmers (the family Nemichthyidae - to the depth of 500 m).

Sometimes, eels, irrespective of family, are said to inhabit hovercrafts.

An eel can describe a person and/or his actions as a person. Since an eel is an unattractive creature of the sea it realates to a person who is 'jerk' like and may try to 'slither' his way into certain situations for the hope it will benifit him.
1. A person that is disliked by his looks and behavior

2. A ocean creature that bares resemblance to a snake.

1. Michael thinks Shawn is an eel for asking Jeremy's sister to prom because Jeremy and Michael are close friends with Shawn.

2. When we went fishing we caught an eel, but threw out the sea serpent back into the water.
