A man in Indonesia — missing for days — was found in the stomach of a python after he was suffocated and swallowed whole.
A video appeared on the Tribun Timur news website, showing villagers cutting open the swollen snake to reveal legs and a torso.
The 25-year-old man, known as Akbar, was reported missing Monday night after he didn’t return from work at his palm oil crops a day earlier.
No one noticed he was missing because his wife was visiting family. It wasn’t until an uncle came to visit, and found the home locked, that he realized something was wrong.
Junaedi, secretary of Salubiro village, said villagers came upon some of his palm oil fruit, some tools and a lone booth.
Then, he added, villagers saw the 23-foot reticulated python.
“When its stomach was cut, we first saw his boot and legs near the neck,” he said. “It seems he was attacked from behind because we found a wound on his back.”
Reticulated pythons — a breed native to south Asia — are known to use dozens of teeth to grab its prey, squeeze it to death and consume it whole.
Typically they don’t target humans — opting for monkeys and pigs.
Nope. No ma’am.
