Crash crosses this sizzling hazard by jumping on to cylindrical pads (which are sometimes moving). However, Crash can walk in the water while the eel has temporarily discharged all of his electricity but the player must move or act fast or else he will be fried. There are eels that always electrocute the water not giving Crash a chance to touch the water without getting electrocuted. These special eels were only found on the yellow gem path of Sewer or Later.
Electric eels also appear in the level Air Supply in Crash Bandicoot: The Huge Adventure. In this game, they do not make the surrounding water electric. Instead, they are a normal enemy that Crash can spin when they are not electric.
