It’s the post we never imagined we’d be posting, but it’s true. Animal Planet’s adventurer-host of “Wild Recon,” Donald Schultz, will spend 10 days, 24/7 in a glass box with 100 snakes at O’Sheas, Jan. 17-26.

The stunt is being staged to raise awareness about the profound and nearly limitless foolishness of Mankind. Kidding. It’s to raise awareness for snakebite victims around the globe. The whole spectacle will be filmed for a TV special, “Venom in Vegas,” to air Feb. 9 on Animal Planet.

This event is sure to bite. On a grand scale.

Schultz has traveled worldwide to collect venom and DNA from rare animals for his series “Wild Recon.”

Outside O’Sheas, Schultz will eat, sleep and drink alongside snakes such as pythons, rattlesnakes and cobras. The custom 16-foot by 20-foot glass enclosure will have its own bed and tiny bathroom. Schultz will start with 50 snakes and have five new ones added each day.

Animal Planet has readied a team of world-class experts should something go wrong during the stunt. Animal Planet is partnering with the University of Arizona’s Venom Immunochemistry, Pharmacology and Emergency Response Institute (VIPER) for the event.

More details to come. Make sure to stop by O’Sheas for the wildlife on display! Which pretty much describes O’Sheas every night of the week, but you know what we mean.
