Discovery Channel announced that they will be starting a new show called “Eaten Alive” in which a man is willing to be eaten by an anaconda. The show is expected to premiere next month.
They claim that naturalist and wildlife filmmaker Paul Rosolie will wear a protective snake suit to protect him from being killed as he is inside the snake.

As far as we know, anacondas are the largest snakes in the world. The term “anaconda” usually refers to the green anaconda, found in South America. The largest of these snakes can grow up to 22 feet in length.
Business Insider called “bullcrap” on the new show and tweeted a zoologist in New York for more information.

Here’s a look at the “protective suit.”
Good luck with that one, Discovery.
