"Further to the possible confusion of eels and snakes being eaten, an eel when held in the bill of a stork is able to twist its tail around the stork's bill and appears very un-eellike. "

G'day from the warm days and cool evenings of tropical Qld,

The above comment must not have come from a fisherman. Eels when captured normally twist vigourously. The do still look eel like and not snake like because of the fins. This my be complicated by sea snakes which may look eel like but not V. V.
