Open Wide: Anaconda Eats Man Alive on Discovery Channel?

Paul Rosolie says he was eaten alive by a giant green anaconda, the largest and most powerful snake in the world.

The herpetologist, naturalist and author presented himself as prey to the snake after putting on a special reinforced suit with helmet and devices to measure his vital signs, he says in a press release on the Discovery Channel website.

"She got me right in the face," he said. "The last thing I saw was her mouth wide open before everything went black. As this happened, she wrapped around me and took me off of my feet. I felt the suit cracking. It felt as if my arms were ripping out of their sockets."

Rosolie doesn't say much about the experience in the western Amazon, which was filmed in advance, because he wants everybody to tune into Discovery Channel's "Eaten Alive" show 9 p.m. Sunday ET.

    Such garbage to watch. The snake DID NOT eat him at all. Tasted him yes. Coiled his body yes. NOT EAT. The Mouth couldn't fit over the helmet and the guy tapped out before it even tried. BORING
