PARIS, March 31 (UPI) -- Airbnb is offering adventurous travelers the chance to literally sleep with the fishes -- with the fishes in this case being 35 sharks.

The accommodation-finding website announced the latest offering in its "Night At" series, an underwater room for two with a 360-degree transparent wall being all that separates the room from the 35 sharks at the Shark Aquarium in Paris.

"Love sharks? Live in a Shark Aquarium. This is your once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to sleep in an underwater bedroom, where the only thing separating you from your neighbors is the 360-degree transparent wall," the listing reads.

The night for two is available only to applicants who submit an essay of up to 550 words about why they should be selected to sleep with the sharks.

The facility has some ground rules for lodgers, including:

•No selfies after dark. Remember, sharks are sensitive to light. 

•Avoid seeing Jaws before your sleepover. They're kinder than you think! 

•No sleepwalking or night swimming. 

•Don't eat the chum. 

•No diving. 

•Keep your heads and feet in the bedroom at all times. 

•Sheep can't swim, so count sharks instead. 

•Don't take the bait.
