This anaconda don't want none unless you're wearing a specially-designed suit that prevents it from digesting you, hon. 

Actually, we have a feeling the anaconda really doesn't want none of this, but hey, science ratings. 

The Discovery Channel plans to air a special titled Eaten Alive in which an idiot naturalist named Paul Rosolie will be eaten alive by an actual anaconda while he's wearing a snake-proof suit covered in pig's blood (to make him more appetizing). 

There is already a petition on referring to the special as "animal abuse to the highest degree" and calling on people to boycott the network. 

Network reps have assured Entertainment Weekly that it's not a hoax, the magazine reports. Here's the promos that have been released so far. 


Eaten Alive is set to air on Dec. 7.
