In case we forget after seeing so many images of the gushing oil leak that this disaster doesn't exist in a vacuum, CBS has caught this amazing footage of a deep sea eel checking out the oil spill. The animal swims very close to the leak and seems to be darting around it. We hope that the eel will make it after being so close to the oil gusher.
