Never the one to shy away from a bit of adventurism, Australian spin legend Shane Warne ended up getting bitten on the head by an anaconda during his ongoing stint on a reality TV show here.
After facing boxes filled with African clawed frogs, scorpions, Madagascan hissing cockroaches and rats, Shane was presented with a box of snakes, while on the reality show: I’m A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here!
Host, Dr Chris Brown, warned Shane that with the scent of rat on his skin, the snakes could easily think he is their next meal.
Shane has made no secret of his fear of snakes. The box contained anacondas, rat snakes and corn snakes. The juvenile anaconda was the one that actually struck Shane.
“Anacondas have 100 rear-facing teeth. Being bitten by one is like getting 100 hypodermic needles at once,” a Network Ten spokesperson said.
Shane was treated for his injury.
