Celebrity survivalist and 'Naked And Afraid: Alone' veteran Gary Golding, often called the 'Tarzan of Los Angeles', was purportedly seen eating a dolphin's heart, according to a TMZ video.

When he came across the corpse of a baby dolphin on the Laguna Beach, California, Golding sliced it open, saying he wanted to find out if there were traces of plastic inside its body. After ensuring that it was clean from inside, Golding claimed that he did not want the "poor creature" to go to waste. 

He then added that he wanted to prove that he was a true scavenger before he dug into the creature with his bare hands and took out its heart. He later grilled the organ and ate it, concluding that it "definitely tastes gamey".

Meanwhile, Golding is featured in an episode of 'Naked And Afraid: Alone' from Belize, which was aired on January 12. In the episode, every inch of Golding's body was seen covered in mosquito bites and an infection on his back that he fears is from a botfly.

The infection, although not a botfly, had to be cut off from his body by a medic without any pain medication after its severity grew. If it had been allowed to stay, it could have given Golding gangrene.

"I can feel the pain breathing under my skin," he says to the camera after his back started to swell up. Golding also pointed out how the flies were eating his sores as they were seen going inside the wounds on his body.

With a dearth of food in the wild, Golding was also seen consuming everything from fish to Cahoon nuts, munching on roasted tarantulas and bird eggs.

Let's say it's very queasy if you're sitting at home watching him. Do not snack while watching this show — it just doesn't go down all that well.

Catch the next episode of 'Naked and Afraid: Alone' on Sunday at 10 pm EST on Discovery.
