On Jan. 17 world-renowned animal adventurer and venom expert Donald Schultz entered a clear glass box located outside O’Sheas Casino where he will spend the ten days and nights in the company of 100 deadly snakes.
The stunt, “Venom in Vegas” will be filmed as part of a two-hour special edition of Animal Planet’s new series WILD RECON, slated to air Feb. 9, 8 p.m. ET/PT. WILD RECON premiered earlier this month and chronicles Schultz’s adventures as he attempts to get his hands on some of the most deadly animals on the planet.
Sharing just a 16′ x 20′ enclosure, Schultz will eat, sleep and drink among a wide variety of snakes including cobras, pythons and rattlesnakes, and do it all within the view of spectators and tourists.
Some of Las Vegas’ own entertainers and brave media will enter the box to be a part of the action, outfitted in a specially designed “armored” suit.
