Where does electric eel occur in the wild?

in Australia
in South America
in Africa
in South-East Asia
Electric eels inhabit muddy waters of the Amazon and Orinoco basins flood­plains and swamps. For­tu­nate­ly, these are remote and un­in­hab­it­ed areas, as electric eels can easily kill a human. Although it doesn't eat such large animals (it has no teeth and can swallow only small mam­mal­s), a series of electric shocks is enough to stun and drown a horse.
