Length them can reach two meters, and weight - five - six kilograms. Males of eels live in mouths of the rivers flowing into the Baltic Sea, and also at its coast, I will tell below - why. The eel is extremely hardy, strong and hardy. There live eels long enough, before quarter of the century.
At night eels can creep on a dewy grass from one reservoir in another, densely covering at the same time branchiate covers. On ignorance it in twilight can be taken for a snake, but you do not hurry to grab a stick or other make-shifts. Just stop and look - it is interesting.

Once in twelve years, and sometimes and in twenty five, the only time in life, females of eels leave fresh-water reservoirs and go to the Baltic Sea where meet males. Together they leave to the ocean and with Gulf Stream float through all Atlantic to the Sargasso Sea. There are females, having spawned, perish.
Young people of an ugryat within three years overcome distance about eight thousand kilometers, eating plants and small marine animals in way. They come back home, to coast of Baltic, and already from there extend almost across all territory of the European part of Russia. The eel is found practically in all reservoirs of Moscow area, including anonymous, small streamlets and channels!
