Anaconda man fails to get eaten alive for Discovery special

Researcher and conservationist Paul Rosolie was attempting to get ingested by a giant green anaconda, but at the conclusion of the two-hour special he had neither captured the 25-ft. snake he went searching for in the Amazon nor got swallowed into the belly of the beast.
It was 70 minutes into “Eaten Alive” before Rosolie and his team caught a giant anaconda (measuring nearly 20 ft. and 250 lbs.), but he pressed on in search of the monster 25-footer, which he has a brush with but it is ultimately too big for him to restrain.
The actual eating attempt – which didn’t start until 20 minutes left to go in the special – took place outside the floating forest where Rosolie was searching for the giant snake and done with an anaconda already in captivity.  More
