Sorry, no etymologies found.
Two moons, one at three quarters and the other full, shone brightly, while the water was alive with gymnotuses and other luminous creatures.
Some of these gymnotuses are about the length of a common snake, others are about ten feet long, while others, which, however, are rare, even reach fifteen or twenty feet, and are from eight to ten inches in diameter.
