Paul Rosolie will don a special suit so that he can be eaten by an anaconda for an upcoming documentary.
It goes without saying that most of us would prefer to avoid being eaten by a giant snake, yet Rosolie is setting out to make this happen deliberately so that the whole thing can be filmed.
The naturalist and filmmaker is no stranger to dangerous situations having previously traveled in to the jungle with poachers to document the illegal trade of endangered wildlife. This latest stunt however is likely to be the riskiest thing he has ever done.
In an attempt to ensure his safety he will be wearing a special suit of his own design that will help him survive the snake’s super-strong constriction and the digestive juices within its stomach.
The stunt, which will be aired in a special Discovery Channel documentary called “Eaten Alive”, has already generated a great deal of criticism from animal rights groups on the basis that the attempt could be harmful to the snake, especially if something goes wrong.
It also isn’t clear how Rosolie will extricate himself from the snake once he’s inside.
