Paul Rosolie took it upon himself to get voluntarily devoured by the largest snake in the world on the Discovery Channel, and the footage has been leaked online.

Dressed in a suit made of iron to defend against the deadly acids secreted by the anaconda’s skin as it constricted around him, Rosolie eventually had to call a halt once he started feeling as though the stunt might, somehow, kill him.

Watch here…

It makes for fairly intense viewing, even if it is difficult at times to make out what’s going on. Apart from him being eaten alive.
