Darts to kill Me has even prepares to fire. It's easy to see why the Matisse were once referred to as the Jack your People. I've never seen a human look so animalistic, so predatory, so I'm guessing the poison is taking effect. It's not completely paralyzed, but it sze incapacitated. It's it's going to come up with something. The whole mood has changed. That was quite a bit of excitement in terms of getting the shot in. Now it's just waiting. As the Cayman resurfaces further deadly darts or fire. Gotta, gotta, gotta gotta get it. The more poison they can get into its bloodstream, the quicker it will succumb. They don't want to lose this valuable meal. Finally, the Cayman is brought aboard, where Van performs a brief blessing upon it. Cayman is one of the more formidable predators that lives in the Amazon waters. But even this was no match for the poison on the end of these doors. Looking at this, I am reminded very vividly Off came in that I saw in the video clip that was considerably bigger than this, which grabbed hold of an electric eel and within a matter of moments was immobilized. So the electric eel managed to do in a matter off seconds what it took these guys to do in over an hour. Can the Matisse really handle these creatures without falling foul of their lethal shocks? Hopefully, I'm one step closer to finding out on my return. I learned from bushy, but I've been granted an audience with the village Shaymen, It said. He wields mysterious powers, including the ability to protect the hunters from the eels. Deadly shocks? No. Inside the malaka, a ceremony is underway. Shame and asks me to explain what it is I hope to learn here. If somebody from outside who's not Matty, somebody like me were to try this kind of fishing. What might happen? Look long at the time that was a surprisingly forceful replied she'd take it in. I absolutely don't recommend you Try. The shock is very strong. That could burn your arm. It could even give you a heart attack. Clearly, they believe that the electric eel can kill and burn but the shame and insists that the Matisse can resist their deadly powers. He then begins a strange ritual. Could this be the secret of their immunity? He burns to hardwood sticks in the fire, pressing the glowing embers into the hunter's arms on picking the blistered flesh away before rubbing a mysterious paste into the raw wounds supporting that comes from the skin of a certain frog. On the body's reaction to any poison, the first reaction is to empty the stomach as the tribesmen vomit beside me. The link between this ritual on the supposed ability of the Matisse to handle the eels is unclear to me. But there has to be some good reason for undergoing what looks like a very unpleasant experience. They do say that what makes a good hunter is an empty stomach made, maybe does some kind of link. But as the hunters go to recover, one thing is for sure. It appears that tomorrow I shall finally see with my own eyes whether this tribe can really handle the fish that's claimed burn human flesh. Hunters rise Early on. Dhe focused on their task. Leave me struggling to keep up. Overnight rain has turned dust into mud, and I worry whether the water has risen, making it impossible to find a Neil. Let's alone catch one. We're going to the other side of the river, not straight across. Apparently, we're going a little way upstream. What a little way is, I don't know exactly. I suspect a little way could even be an hour. Such concepts start toe lose meaning here way. Make our way a little up river before starting our trek into the jungle. I'm no stranger to dense tropical forest, but if van seems to slip through the undergrowth without effort heading off the path, we reach a pool where the hunters employ their first meal catching technique. I think that it's, Ah, it's a wounded animal or something. Apparently, this this flushing sound. It's something that just gets their curiosity. They begin to take up their positions when the water is just confined to small bubbles. That's when they tend to just grab one with their hands. The hunt moves into its next phase, a pregnant woman during the splashing in the water. This is small, reliable in terms of calling the electric eels. It seems improbable, but suddenly old hell breaks loose. It's chaos As the hunters try to bring the fish into shallow water in water like struggle to get close, he'll rise to get free. Finally pushy, the man who brought me here, I could use a trembling to say Drumlin holds a live electric eel in his bare hands. Just holding up is holding it life seen what these fish capable off. I'm not too comfortable being this close, he says. It is shocking. This is the fish that is responsible for killing people on, according to others, actually burning their skin. But looking at bushy now, no sign of any burns. He's bean holding this now for several minutes.
