The yellow eel has reached the river and found the perfect habitat

The river is where the eel will spend the majority of it’s life, before swimming all the way back to the Sargasso Sea to spawn.

The eel needs a healthy river, full of food, plenty of clean flowing water and no barriers to prevent it swimming up and down the river.

Use this colouring sheet to create some awesome Eely artwork. What do you think the yellow eel is thinking now it has reached the perfect habitat in the river?
