The Eel Totem
Eels are masters of disguise and their camouflage makes them very elusive creatures. There is still a great deal of mystery surrounding the Eel. Not much is known about their reproductive habits. Eels migrate in the autumn and they have been difficult to track in the wild. They are nocturnal and prefer to hunt for food at night. In the day they tend to burrow into the sand or bottom of the mud at the bottom of the water and hide and rest until ready to begin hunting for food again. Eels have very sharp teeth and powerful jaws which allow them to stalk prey much bigger than themselves. They are very fast swimmers and their bodies are very strong.
In Japan Eels, which are called Unagi, have been known for centuries as a food that will help endure the hot days of summer and they consume very large quantities of the Eel everyday during the summer months. The Eel provides endurance and sustenance to those who consume it.
In the magical world they are among the few shape shifter creatures and animals that exist in the world and many legends and folk lore stories tell of the Eel changing into human form and back again, at will. They are said to have the magic of allowing one to watch unseen due to their great elusiveness and ability to remain hidden at all times.
Celtic legends abound in regard to the Eel and the Book of Kells mentions them many times throughout, as creatures that can change form by growing legs and walking on land for great distances, only to shift back into their familiar snake like form and return to the sea.
