    it's a real extensive answer/explanation, but basically they have three sets of organs in their abdomen (hunter's organs and sach's organs) that are made of electrolytes that are lined up to produce the electrical charge.
    i don't know the fine details of how they trigger the charge - probably just a signal from their brain sets everything in motion. i know they're in one of my bio books and it has a fuller explanation, but i can't find it at the moment.
