A complete detail of the Armored Snake Suit
1. A Breathing and Communication Mask will be Paul’s lifeline to the outside world. The breathing mask is the same device used by firefighters in smoky environments. It allows oxygen to flow in while keeping mud and water out. The mask is mic’ed and there is a speaker at Paul’s ear, allowing him to communicate with the safety team at all times.
2. A Neoprene Layer will give the anaconda a “fleshy” texture to sink its teeth into. This layer is two inches thick so that the snake can sink its teeth in and grab hold. The neoprene fabric will absorb a generous coating of pig’s blood, which will make the suit smell like the anaconda’s prey.
3. A full-face Composite Helmet protects the delicate Breathing and Communication Mask. The helmet is covered by a thick neoprene layer to mimic the texture of the snake’s prey.
4. An Acid Protection Tychem Layer will keep Paul from being digested by the anaconda. It can withstand 127 toxic chemicals, including those similar to the gastric acids that Paul might encounter inside the snake. The Tychem layer was tested for 8 hours, longer than Paul plans on staying in the suit.
5. Beneath the suit, Paul will wear a Biometric Vest with Bluetooth Health Monitor. This will allow an on-site physician to wirelessly monitor Paul’s heart rate, respiration rate and core body temperature during the ordeal.
