Discovery Channel’s ‘Eaten Alive’ snake is alive and well. Despite concerns from PETA and other various other animal rights agencies around the world, the decision to be eaten alive by a giant snake did not work out for naturalist Paul Rosolie and his film crew.
Only a short time after Rosolie began his experiment, he begged his team to rush to his aid and save him from the mammoth snake that was squeezing the life out of him.
The 250 pound, 20-foot Anaconda didn’t even come close to swallowing Paul Rosolie before his team rushed to his rescue. Instead the Anaconda showed off its massive ability to squeeze the heck out of its prey.
The experiment, as revealed by Rosolie, relied on a Peruvian green anaconda that was already being held in captivity.
“We didn’t want to stress out a snake and then release her to the wild,” explains Rosolie. “We wanted to be able to check her out, make sure she was okay. We kept in touch with her keeper for weeks afterwards to make sure she was alive and back to normal. We wanted to keep the suspense but really, it wasn’t that big of deal for the snake. But people have been drawing such crazy conclusions, we let them wonder.”
While PETA initially attacked the special, claiming that the snake was being “tormented” for rating, Rosalie say of the group, “they helped me out a lot.”
Rosalie was equipped with a special snake suit that was meant to protect him from the Anaconda. Apparently when all is said and done, the world’s largest snake is even stronger and more deadly than we might have originally believed.
