A rather unusual consequence of the coronavirus pandemic: A Tokyo aquarium, which closed to the public due to the pandemic, has asked the public for a favor. Seems like their eels have forgotten what humans look like. The once sociable creatures have started to hide in the sand when any of the few aquarium workers walk by their tank.
