There's now a way to "sleep with the fishes" that doesn't involve a watery death.

Airbnb's latest weird rental is in the middle of a shark tank at the Aquarium de Paris in France, but prospective tenants will have to win a competition in order to stay there.

While submerged in a tank ten metres deep, guests will share the space with 35 sharks, separated only by a 360-degree transparent wall.

The shark sleepover will take place on April 11, 12 and 13, with freediver, underwater photographer, and shark enthusiast Fred Buyle taking guests on a tour of the aquarium.

Guests will also enjoy a meal inside the tank - rather than being the meal for those on the outside.

The site recommends avoiding the movie Jaws before taking up the residency.
