Shrieking Eels are 30' long serpentine fish. They produce a keening wail as they close in on their prey. Those that hear the shriek must Save vs. Spells or become paralyzed with fear. Panicked creatures stop swimming but continue to tread water, and may not attack or cast spells. There are both marine and fresh water varieties of Shrieking Eels, and they have been found in water-logged sections of dungeons as well.
