The show is called Eaten Alive and it will air in early December. Rosolie, who is a wildlife filmmaker, has been described as a cross between Steve Irwin and Bear Grylis. But this might show he also has a bit of Houdini too!
Currently the details about the stunt are scarce, but the promotional page on Discovery’s website simply says says: “Naturalist and wildlife filmmaker Paul Rosolie enters the belly of an anaconda in a custom-built snake-proof suit.”
Let’s just hope this doesn’t turn out to be another Discovery “click bait” experience like the Mermaid show. But if it is real, there is one huge question that remains unanswered – how will Rosolie survive the incredible crushing power the anaconda will bring to bear on him before it tries to eat him. Under normal circumstances, an anaconda will kill it’s prey by squeezing it to death before attempting to swallow it. Obviously, the snake can feel a heart beat and won’t attempt to eat Rosolie before his heart stops.
But hey, it’s TV right… I guess we will just have to wait and see. In the meantime, check out these Anaconda videos from my Youtube Channel.
