    That's a really good question. Like human saliva, snake saliva includes enzymes that begin breaking down the prey's body as it travels towards the intestines. But I don't know how fast it works and how 'strong' it is... and since prey is pretty much always dead when it goes down, I doubt anybody really knows the effects of this on a live human. I assume living tissue breaks down differently than in a dead person without circulation.

    Short answer... if you want him to survive this, keep his clothes on. :D

    I think I'd rather be crushed to death than fed feet-first to an anaconda capable of consuming me. I would assume that an anaconda has significantly powerful enzymes/gastric acid, at least sufficient to dissolve the thin barrier that is my epidermis slowly until the underlying tissue is exposed. After that it should go rather quickly. I think this because they swallow their prey whole and those are some furry capibaras and other critters which must be difficult to dissolve. Humans are rather soft by comparison.
    If you feel particularly cruel, perhaps you can make the snake consume the prey slowly enough to leave his head outside long enough for him not to suffocate but by actually being overheated inside a serpentine (final) sleeping bag and being digested while still alive. I must assume this is the objective considering the unusual cruelty of having a person being eaten alive feet first by a snake. No rush, keep his clothes on.

    Does anyone find it odd that we haven't heard from @T.Trian in a while? Just saying. ;)

    I have no clue about the answer to this question - I just need to note that this is arguably the most epic thread title ever to appear on this forum.

    The only competitor would be the people who did the dinosaur-themed gay erotica read-along.

    I think we're gonna need to see a post from @T.Trian confirming that.

    (Psst, T - if she suggests any fun tying-up games, DO NOT FALL FOR IT)

    Wow. Westerners with their guns and knives and martial arts talk about bravery, but they have no idea. This guy wins hands down; bravest thing I've ever seen, offering up a leg to catch dinner.

    Let's put it this way; I'm glad I always have a knife at hand. :D And I'll also be sure to keep a handcuff key handy in the future. :p

    Well, it's kinda nice to know that suffering is a matter of seconds.
