Woman swallowed by monster python alive


A woman in Indonesia was swallowed whole by a python as she checked on her cornfields last week. The woman lived on Muna Island off the coast of Sulawesi. She left her home Thursday night to visit her cornfield about a half mile from her home.

Reticulated pythons are common in the area, but it was actually wild boars that the farmer had been worried about initially because they’d be destroying her crops.

When Wa Tiba didn’t return, her sister went out to find her and found her footprints, flashlight, slippers, and machete.

On Friday, 100 villagers from Persiapan Lawela searched the area and found a 23 foot-long snake with a very swollen belly. The villagers killed the snake, cut it open, and found Wa inside intact.

She probably didn’t die inside the snake: A reticulated python secures its prey with a bite, then wraps its body around the victim, squeezing down until the victim cannot breathe, before consuming.

Pythons are the longest snake in the world and usually only eat smaller mammals. However, a similar incident happened a few years ago to a farmer from the nearby village of Salubiro on Sulawesi Island.

  1. Had a 14′, reticulated python. They are very much a badass of the python family. Sold it for $700. African rock pythons can kick some ass too. Burmese are up there.
    Lotta meat on that snake. I betcha the villagers are feasting on it.
