The Canal Creatures

It's just a stretch of canal, photographed on a warm, sunny day, right?

Well, yes it is!

It's actually a part of the winding waters that make their way through the English city of Birmingham.

But there's more...

Along this very section (and several other parts, too) of the old canal reports have surfaced, since at least the mid-1980s, of very large and sometimes-violent eels on the loose.

I'm writing about this little-known saga in my forthcoming book, Monster Diary, and a weird and ominous saga it is, too...
