Rare Eel Sighting

Last summer we caught a snake-like creature during pond dipping.  We had never seen anything like it before, but a bit of investigating on the internet revealed it’s identity as a rare European Eel.  The one we caught was a juvenile at about 4cm long, apparently they can grow up to 1m in length!
