  • 54-year-old woman in the stomach of a seven-metre python on Muna island Indonesia

Videos shared on the internet showed villagers slicing open the python's carcass to reveal the woman's body.

An Indonesian woman who had gone missing was found inside a 23-foot-long python which apparently swallowed her.

A 14.85 meter-long (49 feet) reticulated python curls in a box in Curugsewu, Central Java, Indonesia, Sunday, Dec. 28, 2003.

The field was about a half mile from her house, surrounded by cliffs, caves and a certain number of reticulated pythons, the longest snakes in the world.

Indonesian villages are getting notoriously infamous for horrifying incidents of giant pythons' attack on humans.

When she didn't return by Friday morning, her sister went to look for her, but found only her footprints, flashlight, machete and slippers. In nearly all cases, the predator is a reticulated python (Python reticulatus), a species of python found in Southeast Asia.


"Residents were suspicious the snake swallowed the victim, so they killed it, then carried it out of the garden", said local police chief Hamka.

In March previous year, a farmer was killed by a python in the village of Salubiro on Sulawesi island.

The victim, 54-year-old Wa Tiba, went missing while checking her vegetable garden near her village on Thursday evening.

"When they cut open the snake's belly they found Tiba's body still intact with all her clothes", the official told The Los Angeles Times.

In March 2017, another farmer was killed by a python in the village of Salubiro on Sulawesi island. Their suspicions proved correct as the human body was found inside its belly. Residents then suspected the snake swallowed Wa Tiba.
