Eat Me Anaconda? My Asp!

We did say in our blog of 6th November 2014 that we didn’t think  Paul Rosolie offering himself as lunch for an anaconda was such a good idea and guess what?  It wasn’t.


Wearing a specially designed suit that made him look far more threatening than Darth Vader and being filmed for The Discovery Channel, the poor provoked anaconda was in the process of breaking Paul’s arms and ‘going for his head’ when Paul decided enough was enough.

“She nailed me right in the face and the last thing I saw was her mouth wide open before everything went black. And then she wrapped me and I felt the suit cracking and my arms ripping out of their sockets. It was absolutely terrifying,” Rosolie told Entertainment Weekly in an interview.

We find it hard to believe why someone who professes to be a conservationist would want to torment an animal and goad it in to eating him.  Now given the size of the snake’s head and Paul’s bulk in his Star Wars fancy dress, would it have even been possible for the anaconda to have swallowed him without literally busting its gut?  We believe it was a cruel and unnecessary stunt and are surprised at The Discovery Channel went along with it.
