featured an Amazon consevationist
and snake expert named Paul Rosolie
wearing a protective outfit,
a carbon-fiber suit actually,
who would offer himself to be eaten alive
by no less than an anaconda
but that he would not be killed in the process.
His protective suit would let him survive
the snake's dangerous constriction.
This was all done in the Amazon rainforest
where he bathed in a pig's blood
to attract the snake
and then be consumed by its powerful jaws
into its stomach and possibly be regurgitated
for anacondas are known to do that
when they don't like the food they swallow.
But weeks before the show aired,
while still being promoted to great heights,
there were lots of concerns raised especially
by the animal rights group PeTA
or People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals.
The group disaspproved the show claiming
it may do some harm to the snake
and people also are concerned for Paul
who will be in a very dangerous situation
during his stunt.
The show went on its airing
but with much disappointment.
Paul was never eaten alive, they say,
but only his head was swallowed giving us
a view of what's inside the snake's mouth.
It never went further
for he called for help when he felt
it was too much for him to endure.
He felt his arm was draining with blood
and it was about to snap, t
hat was why he called for the emergency team on standby.
And within minutes after that disappointing airing,
people were complaining and bashing the show
for it never delivered the promise
of being eaten alive
and possibly regurgitated alive.
What was much-hyped television special
was a lie after all as most viewers felt.
But before these criticisms go any further,
we have to take note that such a stunt
is very dangerous in every way.
But it was a good try,
so in the near future we will see a stunt guy
who can be really eaten alive by a huge snake
with cameras all over his body possibly,
videoing every second of it so that viewers
will see what exactly happens to anything
being eaten alive and possibly regurgitated alive
without doing harm to both the snake and the person.
The only criticism should be
that Paul was never eaten alive.
He was just swallowed a little bit.
