African wildlife crusader, Dingo Dinkelman, is preparing to spend five nights with some of the world’s deadliest reptiles.

Inside a secure enclosure, which is being called the “Cage of Death” he will be sharing space with a Nile crocodile and several of the most deadly snakes on the planet. While most people will consider his antics insane, all of Dinkelman’s actions are being done in the name of wildlife conservation.

In his latest daring undertaking, he hopes to portray these incredible reptiles, not as monsters to be feared, but rather an intricate part of the natural world. “These animals are some of the most misunderstood in the natural world, with myths and legends creating them into fearsome monsters,” said Dinkelman.
