A further mystery concerns the migrations of the European eels.

These animals spawn in the Sargasso Sea west of the United States of America.

The newborn eels start their three years long eastbound migration following the Gulf
Stream to the European rivers. Having reached sexual maturity they migrate back to
the Sargasso Sea within four months, however leaving the Azores to their left this time.
It has been proven that the eels need freshwater to reach maturity but why do they
venture on this long journey across the Atlantic Ocean?

Could it be that the eels have a genetic memory of a mainland with freshwater in the
Atlantic Ocean but cannot find it again because it sank? Is that why they keep on
migrating until they reach Europe?

Another phenomenon relates to the suicide of the Norwegian lemmings.

Every year when their homeland is running short of food, these little rodents start
migrating westwards. At the end of their migration they jump into the ocean and
continue swimming westwards until they drown. What is it these animals are after
in the ocean? Are they following a basic instinct driving them into the ocean? Are
they looking for a land that offered them plenty of food a long time ago?

Was this land Atlantis, located in the Atlantic Ocean according to Plato?
