The Aquarium De Paris has built a bedroom in their shark tank so visitors can spend the night sleeping with the deadly predators.

The guests can sleep 10 metres underwater in a glass pod.

The pod offers guests incredible 360 degree views. The tank is home to a terrifying 35 sharks.

The aquarium is offering the opportunity from April 11-13 through a competition in an effort to teach people more about sharks, which they believe are the most misunderstood animals in the world.

Each night, four people will stay in the bedroom, with Fred Buyle, a world record-breaking freediver, underwater photographer, and shark conservationist as their host.

Buyle will welcome the visitors by performing an underwater dance with the sharks, before taking them on a tour of the aquarium with one of the centre’s marine biologists to explain how the animals live, why they’re so misunderstood, and their importance to the ocean’s ecosystem.
