SO SAD😢— Giant Python Swallows Indonesian Woman Whole
April. 06, 2020
A missing Indonesian woman has been discovered dead inside the belly of a 23-foot-long python, village officials said.
Wa Tiba, 54, went to check on her vegetable garden near her village on Muna Island in central Indonesia, according to reports.
A search party on Friday found a reticulated python with a swollen belly about 50 yards from the garden where Tiba’s family found a few of her belongings earlier in the day.
The villagers killed the snake and sliced it open to reveal Tiba’s dead body.
'When they cut open the snake’s belly they found Tiba’s body still intact with all her clothes,' said the village chief, Faris. 'She was swallowed first from her head.'
To kill their prey, reticulated pythons wrap themselves around an animal and crush it, causing it to suffocate or go into cardiac arrest.
This specific species of snake is common in Indonesia and other parts of Southeast Asia, though it is extremely rare for the animal to attack humans.
In March 2017, a 25-year-old man was found dead inside a python’s belly in central Indonesia.
He had been working on his family’s palm oil plantation
