The only thing separating you from your finned neighbors is the 360-degree transparent wall

And you thought your roommates were vicious. 

According to CNET, Airbnb is offering two lucky animal lovers the chance to sleep amongst a group of savvy Parisian sharks. As part of their “Night At” series, the home and room rental service, is holding a contest for a stay at a bedroom in the middle of France’s Aquarium de Paris shark tank, which holds 35 finned residents. 

Along with a night in the cylindrical room where “the only thing separating you from your neighbors is the 360-degree transparent wall,” this “once-in-a-lifetime-opportunity” includes a tour of the aquarium with a record-breaking free diver, a behind-the-scenes look at your shark roomies and a delicious meal (probably not chum) inside the historic facility. 


Of course, something this good comes with a few catches. All those entering the contest have to be healthy enough to enter and exit the room by ladder and, due to the restrictions of the tank, the winner and their guests must weigh under 418 pounds total. But maybe the most important rule: no selfies are allowed after dark. Sharks are sensitive to light and Facebook comments. 


Airbnb is accepting entries until April 3, after which the winner will be announced. The winner and their guest will be flown to Paris to stay with the sharks between April 11-13. Once this dangerous sleep is complete, the “bedroom” will be converted into an observation tank for marine biologists.
