Number of chromosoms of an eel

Postby MrMistery » Mon May 23, 2005 5:48 pm

Hey guys can anyone tell me how many chromosoms does an eel have? I've searched the web but couldn't find anything. Please help

I'm guessing it's somewhat similar to hagfish, so i'd say around 36

Depends on what eel they are thinking of. They might be referring to anguilla

Like i said, it really depends on the species you are reffering to. That is why i always give the latin name
